Stocking Up On School Supplies

If you have kids in school (or even if you have little ones at home) , you know that shopping for school supplies and craft supplies can be pricey. Right now is the ideal time to stock up for this upcoming year. Each week, retailers list various school supplies at ridiculously low prices to lure back to school shopping. If you're going to be out and about anyway, you may want to stop by a few stores. If you're not going to be out and about, you can still get lots of good deals online. Just make sure you go through a cash back site like Mr. Rebates!

These supplies also make great fillers for goody bags at birthday parties. You can also purchase these items while you can get them for a steal and donate them to families who can't afford school supplies.

Here are some of the highlights I'm seeing for this week (and as soon as I finish this post, I'm heading out to do some shopping.) This doesn't include all of the great deals out there, so if you know of other great deals, leave a comment so everyone can benefit!
