Nothing makes me giddy quite like school supplies!

If you're like me, you're a little giddy and a little sickened by the fact that school supplies are out in force! As you start to shop around, I thought I'd put a few ads out there with some great deals! Who doesn't want to save some money?

Target: Not a lot is on sale right now at Target. But they do have a sale on Target glue & glue sticks for .25 cents a pack! Plus, an assortment of basics for just .99 cents!

Menard's: If you have a Menard's close by, they are also having some amazing deals! They TONS of items for under $1. Check out the ad below.

Walmart: Walmart brand markers for only .50 cents and Crayola markers for .99cents regular price! They also have good prices on glue sticks, sticky notes, scissors, and pencil boxes. All regular price.

Still no ads for 1 cent folders or glue... but the office stores usually run those sales in August.

What deals have you found?

Lastly,  I broke down at bought a Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener after my teaching partner raved about it and took photos of herself sharpening pencils... if it's that good, I have to have one too! I bought a Cool Blue one to match  my room! Plus, you can pay with Pay Pal Pay so thanks to all my TPT customers, I have a new sharpener! Look how pretty!

If you're interested in purchasing on, you can get 5% off by going to my referral link! And remember, there is NO SHIPPING! Woo hooo!

Who else has one of these amazing sharpeners? Are they true to all the hype?


  1. I stalk Wal Mart after the 4th just waiting for the new supplies to come out! It is sad! My sister knows my addiction and has always been so patient with all my browsing!

  2. I made a Walmart-Target-Staples run today. I bought a class set of glue sticks from Walmart and the Up and Up brand crayons from Target for 25 cents. Now I just need a class set of scissors. Do you know where I can get a class set for a good price?

    1. I haven't seen any great deals on scissors. Walmart has them for .50 cents a pair. I did find a class pack at JoAnn's but you'd want to use a 40% off coupon because they were close to $30 bucks! Yikes! Hopefully, there will be more sales soon!

  3. Hey Amanda!

    I am a serious back to school supply hoarder. I get extra notebooks for my students around 17 cents a piece at Walmart every year. I always have that one student who doesn't bring anything or others who can't afford it. I also have so many different colored pens, it's out of control. :) Uniball is my favorite! I am your newest follower on bloglovin, if you have a minute I would love for you to follow me!


    1. Thanks for following on Bloglovin'! I can't wait to collaborate as Ohio Bloggers! I understand about hoarding... I have a huge plastic tub of stuff I keep in my mom's basement. Penny glue or .1cent folders go in there! I'm finally running a little low on resources after 7 years! It's great to stock up on things that can't go bad!

      Keep following,


Please leave me some blogger love. Your comments give me great ideas for making this blog even better! -- Amanda
