What is your plan of attack for?

getting the most school supplies for your buck? i usually get the most i can from wal-mart and then i check the post listings for any great give-a-ways. This year a college is giving away 2 bookbags full of supplies to the first 500 people so we are gonna do that. Any great deals where you live? Oh we live in fort campbell kentucky.

  • Also watch the adds for the office supply stores. They run ads where you can get things for as low as a penny and others that are 25 cents. I work at a retail store and we have school supplies in already and you can use coupons on those.

  • Have you checked local churches? There are some around here who do a free backpack thing like the college you mentioned.

  • We buy our's at WalMart. I don't go to the free giveaways since we can afford the supplies our children need.

  • I shop early so I avoid not finding things I need, our of stock, or bad selection, so I'd rather just get the stuff and not worry if its 10cents cheaper somewhere else.

  • I am with rkoloms, I wait until after school starts. My son is in high school, all he needs to start is a notebook, pen and folder. Every teacher requests different things depending on the subject.
