I've been having good success with Staples when shopping for school supplies lately. I just got an email with their new flyer. Here's the link. I'm a little disappointed since there is only ONE 1 cents item and that's it student folders. Usually there are THREE 1 cent items. But I'm not complaining (REALLY!). The economy is tough and I'm grateful they do this program at all!
I will get some of the folders, maybe even twenty five, but I'm not sure we'll need more than that. Do you use student folders in your homeschool? How do you use them? I'd love to hear, becuase if there is a good orgnaizational use for them I'm all for that! I may end up using them for our weekly organizing to set up the year. I've used file folders in the past, but they aren't a penny each so I may try to use these instead.
There were also some other items I"ll be getting a few of:
25 cent 2 pack Sharpies permanent markers
$4 Zebra Z pens- free with rebate
I may get 3 zebra pencil cases, but we already have cloth pencil holder so not sure we need these.
These are 50 cents each and are a decent deal:
Staples paper clips
Staples eraser heads
We are filled up with 25 eraser heads from the 1 cent sale a few weeks ago (When I thought I could only get 1 set of 25- but I have 3 kids, I don't need more eraser caps, I don't think! We'll find out though. That may be the one hot item in our school this year!)
Let me know what other school deals you find out about! This is the time to stock up for the year. It may cramp your space a bit, but your budget will Thank you in January when you are paying 1.50 for an 8 pack of pencils, instead of 1 cent!
