you were talking about back to school deals... staples and office max will rebate 100 percent on backbacks this week... you can get 2 at office max and 1 at staples.. you put the money out first but get 100 percent

2-pocket folders are 9 cents each at Walgreens this week.  Menards has backpacks for 99 cents after $5.00 mail-in rebate, limit 6, and also several other great deals on school supplies, some are free after rebate, some are just an awesome deal after rebate, very cheap.  K-Mart also has great specials on things like filler paper, crayons, colored pencils, pens, glue, highlighters, scissors, index cards, mechanical pencils, etc.  Also, since there are still a few weeks left in the summer for rummage/garage sales, don't overlook those as possible sources to find awesome deals for school supplies.  Also try Freecycle: www.freecycle.org to find a group in your local area.

Did you know that you don't have to pay for school uniforms? It is infact unconstitutional to require the purchase of anything for public school. If your school requires a uniform remind them of the tederal law and demand that they pay foe them.

If possible I always shop a year in advance. I buy all the school supplies on clearance and then just save them for the next year. It works wonders and there is no stress about getting things last minute. Smile
