When do school supplies go on sale?

Hi
I have never really paid attention to when school supplies go on sale, but this year is different.
TIA

Normally right after July 4th...at least that is when they usually start. Most of the time Walmart is first to get their products out at the sale price and then the others follow.

Thank you for your quick response.
Last few years, my state has had "tax free school supply weekend" and that will be around August, but it seemed like last year, the prices some places were higher.
DD11 all ready has the basic list, but her teacher will give students a list of possible things, on open house in September.

Check your school system website as well. Our system has list broken down by grade and has it posted a couple of weeks after school gets out.

I have most items since I stocked up quite a bit last year but we will still need a few items. Around here if we wait until the tax free days there is not much left and the best deals are gone.

i'm in NE Alabama and school starts August 10th, so school supplies should be out in stores here next week. however, i've already got most of the things on DD's list. i buy 2-3 things each week, to spread out the cost. DH has been laid off the entire month of june, so not having to buy everything all at once will really help out.

I think it depends on where you live. I was in Target today and they are starting to set up. Here in Missouri they go on sale in July

Keep an eye on target.com, walmart.com, walgreens, office max, etc. You can find their local flyers online without having to subscribe to the paper. Over the course of the next 2 months, you should be able to get most of your supplies on sale. I have a friend who took her whole family (3 kids and hubby) to each store's school supply sale to get around the "limits." Costco has great looking backpacks and lunchboxes out already. For the last 2 years Toys R Us had a "buy a backpack, get a lunchbox free" deal.

I miss the bargain-shopping for school supplies. My kids go to private schools that ask for a check (~$100) for school supplies. It's convenient, but a very overpriced way to do it.

DD11 has only been 2 weeks as well.
Now July 4th weekend is coming up, it may be a quick summer before I realize it.
Like I wrote, her school's website all ready has the basic supply list, so trying to get that part out of the way.

I bought mechanical pencils and black ink pens at Walgreens for 75 cents a pack of 30 this week. They also had the small staplers with staple puller for 25 cents. A few other things also but did not need them. They were on a end cap at the back of the store.


I bought enough for us to last the school year and some to give to the school.

Not sure when the sales start, but we were at a Target store yesterday and they had the seasonal dept. all ready for school supplies -- so I am assuming any day now?

Very depressing on the first day of July, BTW......

Just think of the children where I live. They start the new school year on Tuesday July 7. A lot of the schools are year round.
