    My Super Walmart had spiral bound single subject notebooks (70 sheets each notebook) in College and Wide Ruled........10 for $1. I thought that was a pretty good deal!! These were on an end cap right by the card section.

    Also, the 24 pack of Crayola crayons---.20 each
    Elmers Washable School Glue--.20 each

    I just got a flyer with this stuff listed in my inserts today. But it said the prices were good July 9-15.....I was thinking of running over there until I saw the dates. This was already available at your store today?

    My girls don't start back until Sept 6 but I usually get the "list " from the school sometime this month and then we usually go right out and get it all before it gets too crazy! :sunny: :wave:

    Ours were out yesterday. The Rose Art 24 Crayons were .10. There were already cases of them empty. Last year we almost missed out because they were selling out so fast.

    How about those 2 pocket/3 prong folders? Did you see those in Wal Mart yet? They seem to run out right around the time I go looking for them, so I want to get them early. I think they are made pretty poorly, but they are always on the kids lists. They are usually only like 15 or 20 cents a piece.

    I didn't see the folders you're talking about. I actually was in a hurry and just picked up the notebooks/crayons/glue. I'm sure I'll be back to Walmart sooner than I'd like to admit (seems like I'm there everyday!!) and I'll check then.

    Hmm,

    I didn't know that wasn't the normal price. We were at WalMart 2 weeks ago and got the notepads for .10 a peice.

    My Walmart had these yesterday...they were 10 cents each.
    Oh My! My kids go back on August 10 :furious: Every year it gets moved up....I feel we barely have a summer. When do your kids get out for the summer??

    Excellent news. I'm going shopping tomorrow and will make a special trip to wal-mart for these. I usually avoid wal-mart as I can never get in and out in less than an hour it seems. Going without DD tomorrow though so I'll be sure to go look for school supplies. Going to print out her list now. :cool1:

    Someone mentioned Staples? Does anyone know if they are having their sales yet? They will price match wal-mart at our local one (don't know if that's everywhere) and I'd rather shop there.

    not all the wal-marts have their items out yet. I have been in 8 walmarts over the last 3 days ( I am a sales rep) and as of today only a couple of them had these out yet.

    I was shopping July 3 and the back to school stuff was already out...we've only been out of school for 2 weeks here! We go back August 30ish. Some districts start a little sooner or later, but it's usually the last week of August.

    Our Wal-Mart is just beginning to put school supplies out. :guilty: My DS saw it and said, "that's why I don't like Wal-Mart in the summer"! Can't blame him! They've been out of school for about a month (how fast has that gone?!!) and the go back mid-late August. :teacher:

    I checked out our Walmart and they had the sale prices on the school supplies in the ad, but alot of them were sold out or not put out yet. I got .20 24-count crayola crayons, they were out of the Rose Art ones. I also got a protractor, compass, and cap erasers for .97. My kids just got out June 16th, they go back the first week of Sept., but it's nice to get an early start and beat the crowds. Thanks for posting, OP, I was going to wait until next week to go.
