The Best Back-To-School Deals This Week (Aug 31-Sept 6)!


I normally put up this post on Saturday, but with my dad’s accident and then getting sick myself (we are both doing much better, by the way!), I wasn’t able to get to it until today.

Surprisingly, stores are STILL running back-to-school sales. I thought items would start being clearanced this week; but since many schools didn’t start back until this week, I think they are hanging on to the regular prices to catch the parents rushing out to buy supplies they forgot about.

Here are the best school and office supply deals for this week, August 31st through September 6th:

OFFICE DEPOT & OFFICE MAX: This week it looks like the ads are the same across all locations and regions!

  • 50% off Trailmaker, Disney, Marvel, Yak Pak, Ful & Schoolio Backpacks
  • Office Depot Brand & OfficeMax Brand Plastic 12″ Ruler, 25-cents, limit 3
  • Scholastic & OfficeMax Brand Pourable Glue, 4 oz, 25-cents, limit 3
  • 50% off Sharpie Single Permanent Markers & All Single InkJoy Pens, should make them around 50-cents, limit 5

RITE-AID: Once again, there are lots of good deals on school and office supplies at Rite-Aid this week!

  • Lunch Kits, Totes or Backpacks, 50% off
  • Mead Composition Book, 100 sheets, 49-cents
  • Mead Notebooks, 70 sheets, 49-cents

  • Playskool Crayons or School Glue, 24 ct. or 4 oz, 49-cents
  • Sheet Protectors, Erasers, Poly or Paper Portfolios, 49-cents
  • Westcott Kids Scissors, 49-cents

STAPLES: Staples is still running their “Less List” sale on popular school supplies, but this week they’ve actually added in some 25-cent deals!

  • 5-Pack Pentel RSVP Ballpoint Pens $4 – Submit for the $4 Easy Rebate, which will make them FREE!
  • Hammermill 8.5 x11 Copy Paper $6.99 - CLICK HERE to print a coupon to purchase the paper, and you will get back an Easy Rebate to make it FREE!
  • Really Useful Storage Bins, 25-cents
  • Sharpie Mini, 25-cents
  • Staples Erasers, 12 pk., 25-cents

TARGET: I am hoping to see Target starting their school supply clearance next week, although they are advertising backpacks and lunchkits for 30% off now!

WALGREENS: Note that my Walgreen’s pulled their promotional back-to-school aisle of items from my store two weeks ago in order to put out the Halloween candy. Depending on your store, you may or may not be able to find all of the deals in this week’s ad.

  • Paper Mate Highlighters 6 pk. or Eagle Ball Point Pens, 10 pk., 99-cents w/ in-ad coupon, limit 3

I’ve Joined Thirty-One!

sept special

As you all know, in July I signed up to be a Clever Container consultant. Well, yesterday I took another leap and joined Thirty-One, too!

I have always loved Thirty-One and have a large collection of their bags and totes. However, I never believed that I could be a consultant because I thought the minimum sales requirement was out of my reach (since, like with Clever Container, I don’t do the at-home parties and only sell on my website). Then I learned that I only need to sell $200 in a 3-month period to stay active. So I signed up!

I love all of the ways I can stay organized with both Clever Consultant and Thirty-One! The Clever Container products offer a lot of practical solutions to organizing every area of your home and car, while Thirty-One offers cute bags and totes to keep you organized at home and on the go!

My start-up kit is on it’s way, but my Thirty-One website is already active. Just like Clever Container, Thirty-One also offers monthly customer specials. For September, you can get the new All-Day Organizing Tote for only $15 (regularly $45!) with a $35 order. I’ve already ordered mine in the super cute Sketchy Dot print (one of the many new patterns for Fall)!
