When do school supplies go on sale?

Specifically, notebooks and crayons. Is there anywhere you can get coupons for school supplies?

  • Keep looking at Staples. Last summer they had one really cheap item every week.

  • Wal-Mart starts with some stuff in July, and adds more stuff every week. We got crayons for 25cents a box (Crayola, 24ct) last year and notebooks for 15cents. Staples does have good sales but it's usually 1-2 items per week and if you're not there right after they open they run out and you're s.o.l.

  • Right before school starts Walmart and Target do some awesome specials. We stock up for the whole year. Ten cent notebooks, 25 cent crayons, five cent folders, deals like that.
