I think there should be a bumper sticker that reads "Will work for school supplies!" They are ridiculously overpriced...UNLESS you are a Debs Dealz Savvy Shopper! Don't pay all of the overhead. Be sensible! If someone you know needs school supplies, send them the link to my page to stay up-to-date on school shopping! Trust me, you WILL have hundreds of dollars!
This is another great week to do your shopping for school supplies, with lots of dollar deals and freebies available at various stores, including HEB, Target, and Office Max. I've compiled the best deals on school supplies for the week of 7/24 through 7/30/11 in one easy list for your convenience.
Remember, most of these stores won't necessarily have tons of stock on hand of the free, penny, and quarter items -- so you will need to get out there early if you want to snag those deals!
