 Im about to start the process of the supply list.

Anyone know where to find the good deals and the coupons?

I have to get:

3 folders (no plastic) I found some in my office that I havent used

2 pairs of pointed fiskars scissors  Target .99 ea ($1.98)

8 large glue sticks Office Max .50/4pk ($1.00)

4 pink pearl erasers Target .99/3pk ($1.98)

1 ream of paper Staples (Free)

1 large box of tissues Safeway $1.49

5 dozen pencils #2 (name brand) Staples Basic Yellow $2 /72 pencils

2 plastic school boxes Target .50 ($1.00)

1 container of clorox wipes Staples $5/3pk (I dont need a 3pk)

Total $12.96 (I havent done all my searching yet this is just what I have so far) This is just going off weekly ads Im sure with the tissue and clorox a single box is much cheaper.

I already have the backpack the most expensive of the items in my opinion. But I would love to pay less then $15 for everything (I doubt it but Im hoping).

 

Question, What is the difference between Pink Pearl Erasers and White Pearl Erasers?

Check Walgreens on Sunday. I get a sneak peek at their ads and they are having coupons for school supplies next week in our area.

I second Target.com for coupons--otherwise I don't know. As for the pencils, if the name brand is Ticonderoga then it's going to be very hard to stay anywhere near $15 because they may be nice, but they are expensive compared to the other brands/non-brands.

Target's website is my suggestion also.

As far as cholrox wipes/tissues etc...I go generic.....

After doing school supply shopping for both kids (one going to 1st and the other going to 6th), getting 4 uniform shirts and a backpack we paid $117.00 at Wal Mart. We didn't use coupons and all supplies were top of the line (Crayola, Five Star, etc). I don't find that bad at all. 

I still need to get our son a backpack, each child needs a belt and they both need new shoes and we are done.
