Posted on 07/23/2009

Kids everywhere are groaning over the appearance of back-to-school sales. After all, it’s not even August yet! But the truth is, when you start shopping early, you’ll get the best deals. There are plenty of free and cheap school supplies out there already. For some more fantabulous B2S coupons, check out the Ultimate Coupons Back To School Sale page. Here are a few to pick up right away.

Walgreens - This week at Walgreens get $1 in Register Rewards when you buy a 2-pack of Pilot G2 Gel Pens for $1. That means it’ll be free. They’ve also got folders, highlighters, pencils and poster board on sale for $.09. For just $.19 you can score mechanical pencils, a ruler, paper clips and more.

CVS - Keep an eye on next week’s CVS flyer. For the past two weeks they’ve had free school supplies including 3-ring binders, pencils and loose leaf paper when you get your Extra Care Bucks. It’s likely that they’ll continue these great deals.

Staples - There are some great deals in this this week's Staples ad. For starters you can buy a backpack and get your money back in Staples Rewards. They’re also offering free mechanical pencils, gel pens, and highlighters when you apply for the Staples Easy Rebate.

Office Depot - Already, Office Depot has been offering free school supplies to those who want to get a jump on their back-to-school shopping. The freebies include binders, highlighters and ballpoint pens. Put Office Depot on your list of stores to watch for upcoming deals, too.

Grocery Stores - Your local grocery store may also be a good place to snag cheap school supplies. I know mine had several items for less than $.25 each and boxes of crayons were three for $1.

Kmart - Kmart also had plenty of school supplies for less than $.50. Pick up composition books, colored pencils and portfolios for either $.25 or $.50. Plus they’ve got Elmer’s glue, a must-have for most kids, marked to just $.20.
