I had a friend ask me the other day what in the world I do with all of the school supplies that I stock up on each year. We tend to be a pretty crafty bunch around here and all the markers, crayons, pencils and glue come in very handy but that does not account for all of it. Above is the start of the “treat bags” that I will give the kids at my daughters birthday coming up in September.
I used the $1/3 Rose Art coupons that were in the 7/29 RP and stocked up yesterday at Target. I also purchased the pencil boxes they have on sale this week for $0.49. Each box will have markers, crayons and glue sticks which were totally free after the Target promotion and coupon and all I am out is $0.49 for the box!
This is why I LOVE back to school deals! I will probably have enough to come up with something for my daughter’s Birthday in January as well. There are several great deals still going so make sure to take advantage over the next few weeks. Make sure to check out all the great deals going on this week…
Can I also add that I think donating extra school supplies is such a wonderful thing to do. I always send A LOT of extras with my daughter and I love to stock up on extras as I find deals because there is always a request later in the year for more items.
