Back to School Supplies

I was thinking about buying a few school supplies for less fourtnate families and was wondering if anyone knew of a website that sell these things wholesale or bulk and any good coupons that can help me on this adventure

  • Wait until close to when school starts. I usually buy alot of things like pencils for 10 cents, and what not. Staples, Walmart etc all have huge sales for it. I buy extra to last all year long and then donate two sets of what a child in a certain grade may need and parents did not buy. So for instance my dd in going into 1st grade I buy enough supplies to last her one year, and then donate for two families the same supplies.

  • When it's back to school time Staples and Office Depot have killer sales - I always stock up for my classroom then.

  • If you live near a Costco or Sam's Club, they might sell those supplies in bulk.

  • No, but if you wait until August places like Walgreens sell packs of pens for a quarter, rulers for 9 cents, etc. I have a Girl Scout Troop. We were able to fill a whole box of supplies last year to donate for only tens of dollars.
