Here’s my take on the best deals on school supplies this week. I’m covering six national chains so hopefully there will be at least one store near you. All six of these stores happen to be within easy driving distance of my home. Whether you want to save money on your own children’s school supplies or are looking to donate school supplies to a local school or charity, hopefully this information will help you save money. If you would like general information on saving money on school supplies please see this article.
The stores aren’t listed in any particular order but the deals are listed from lowest to highest price (after rebates, if applicable). All of the deals are as advertised in my local Sunday paper’s sale flyers but deals may vary by location so be sure to double check prices at your local store before completing your purchases.
