Just came from staples and they had folders on sale for .1 a piece. There is a limit of 15 folders, but totally worth it. The same folders at walmart were .10 a piece. They also had the hand held pencil sharpeners for .1 and boxes of 12 pencils for .1 as well. There is a limit of 3 each on those. I bought some put the stuff in my car and went back in and got more. Totally worth it for the price. I also hit walmart and got the 1 subject notebooks for .10 each and the crayola crayons for .20 a piece. No limit as to what you can buy there which is great. They also had five subject notebooks for 1.48 which is a good deal also. Just FYI for those looking to get started on their school shopping.

Yes, I JUST got back and was going to post! Bought the boxed pencils, folders, and sharpeners -- 1 cent each. In addition, they have nice 1" 3-ring soft plastic binders and plastic binders for 20-25 cents each. There's also a rebate on 12-pack colored markers, which I bought and just submitted on-line.

I checked out Wal-Mart yesterday and at least here in CT, the shelves are still empty and the items they do have aren't the super-low back-to-school prices.

Also, for those of you who have Rite-Aid, they have wooden school rulers for 20 cents and 100-pack index cards for 20 cents (both of these items are on my childrens' lists).

I find it much easier to take the Staples add to Wal Mart b/c evertime I try to get the items at Staples they are out!! Wal Mart matches all the items.

Looks like I'm going school shopping this week already! I am so happy that the kids' schools sent home lists with their report cards :)

I hit Walmart the other day and Staples a little while ago. They were out of the plastic portfolios so I might go back later in the week. I did get all the other one penny items and the Flair markers( don't need them right now but free can not be passed up!!!!!!!

I went this morning too! My dh thinks I'm crazy everytime I see a sale or free after rebate. I also got the internet security software that was free after rebate. Then we headed to Walgreens where I got Shampoo, hairspray, back pain reliever patches and pantyliners all free after rebate! Whoohoooo!!!

Are these the folders that have the three prongs in the center? Or do they just have the two pockets and no prongs?

Great. I was wondering when Staples sales would come out. :Pinkbounc

I don't know about currently, but the last time I asked, my Staples prices matches Wal-Mart so if you have that sale paper (I haven't gotten one yet *sigh*) you can get the Wal-Mart stuff at Staples. I personally, hate going in Wal-Mart. Can't really explain it, but I always leave grouchy.

I'm with YOU, Nancy. And so is my youngest DD. When I told her about this, she said "I'm NOT going back to school shopping now! We haven't even done summer shopping yet! :rolleyes2:: :rotfl:

I told her that *I* would go out then. I hate to spend 89 cents or more on spiral notebooks when I can get them now for 10 cents!!!

I am not the biggest Walmart fan either but .10 notebooks is too good to be true for me, especially since I have 5 kids to buy for. Last year I waited until school started for alot of my stuff and I spent way more than I did so far this year. I only need a few more things and I am all done with the school supplies lists!!

The girls and I were the first customers at our store today. :cheer2: They just loved buuying their school supplies with their own change. :goodvibes Better than a yard sale deal.

Thanks for the heads up. Here in our district (don't know if it is state wide) our kids don't have to provide their own supplies, at least in Elementary school. They only get the basics, so I do buy extra crayons and markers, but my DD11 draws and writes constantly so those 10cent notebooks are a blessing!

I got all the $.01 items too! I told one of the workers there that the government is considering doing away with the penny, and "who says you still can't buy something for a penny?" You gotta love it!

I also picked up DS a sling backpack like he wants for $20. But I asked them their return policy, in case I find one cheaper. They have no time limit, buy you need the receipt.

My DS starts kindergarten 5 weeks from today, so it's not too far off for us. Thanks for posting OP, I've been waiting for these sales to finish off DS's lengthy supply list. For these prices I'll pick up extras for the teacher.

This is one of those "The Early Bird Gets the Worm" tales!

Went to my Staples today - at 6:30 tonight.... and they were all OUT of the Pencils, Sharpeners and Binders. All they had was the Two pocket folders and the markers FREE with Rebate.

Looks like I am going to try another in the morning!

Okay,

Small vent here. WHY do they advertise on my television, the local channels during the news, when there is not a store within 50 miles of the metro area? Waste money much?

This was an awesome deal! I got:

16 2-pocket, 3-prong folders (I made trips to 2 stores) .16
3 boxes of 12 pencils .03
6-pk highlighters 1.99
2 composition notebooks 1.28
5 plastic 2-pocket, 3-prong folders 1.00
1 zipper pouch pencil case .99
3 pkgs 150-sht wide-ruled filler paper 1.17
6 1-subject notebooks 1.49
4 plastic 1/2-in 3-ring binders 1.00
1 pencil sharpener .01

GRAND TOTAL $9.84

All bought on a $10 Staples Gift Card I hadn't used yet! Both stores were out of the free Flair markers, so I may go back when their truck comes in. Thanks for the heads up on this--even though we had an ad in the paper, I hadn't read it yet.

Poly - I just came from the Shelton Walmart and they are putting up the stuff, now. I got a ton of stuff (but will be going to Staples today to pick up the $.1 folders). It's nice to see good sales coming down the pike.

BUT, they do have the pencils and some other stuff available online..however, the shipping is nearly $8.00 for a .03 item...oh well

Thanks for posting!!!

Also, Office Depot here has 24pks of Crayola Crayons for only .15, limit 5. I bought 5 on Sunday, and I plan on going back today to buy 5 more for me, and have my DD buy 5 as well.
