Back to School Shopping Trip August 14-20, 2016

Back to School Shopping Trip August 14-20 2016
I LOVE to stock up with everything we’ll need for the whole year at rock bottom prices!  Buying now gives us the opportunity to stock up for ourselves, and even buy a little for the community!  With so many great deals, I don’t ever feel the need to walk into Walmart, but they have some pretty great deals too!  This is the “best of the best”.  I shop every week over an 8 week period to get the best deals, and save the most money.  You can find all our Back To School Match-ups for this week here.

Staples:

Staples Back to School Shopping 8-14-2016

So, Staples seems to be running the same ad, with 2 or 3 weekly steals.  I’m pretty much stocked up on everything and have a hard time buying just to buy.  Be sure to check out their Less List to see what they have on sale every week!  Things like Crayola Crayons, Composition Books, Spiral Notebooks, and more are consistently cheapest here!

Having a overage experience at Staples is a YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) situation.  Some allow it, some don’t.  And usually the cashier can’t do anything about it, either way.  So, fingers crossed.  I didn’t even realize what it did until I got home and looked at the receipt!
