It may be a while before class is back in session, but deals on school supplies are already in full force! Stocking up on everything your child needs doesn’t have to be expensive—especially with these ten deals under a buck.

Pens - Take this printable coupon for $1 off a pack of Pilot pens to Walgreens this week. They’re on sale for $.99 which means you’ll score the pens for free. Or you could also head to Target.com to print a coupon for $1 off two BIC stationery items. Ten-packs of BIC pens are on sale for $.99 which means you can get two packs for $.98 when you use the coupon.

Folders - Folders are just $.15 at Kmart right now. These feature two pockets and three prongs. There is a limit of 15 per customer.

Pencils - Get enough pencils to last your little one the entire school year. A 30-pack of mechanical pencils will only set you back $.99 at Walgreens this week. And if colored pencils are on your list, head to Target where a pack of Crayola colored pencils is just $.88.

Paper and Notebooks - If you prefer to shop for school supplies while you’re shopping for groceries, check out the filler paper at Kroger. You’ll get 150 sheets for just $.75. Or pick up a similar pack for just $.50 at Kmart. If wire bound notebooks are on your list, get them for $.15 each at Meijer, or a six-pack for $.50 at Office Depot.

Rulers or Protractors - Not everything is digital. If your child still has a ruler or protractor on their school supply list you may want to head to Walgreens for that. You’ll be able to pick them up for just $.39 each. Or you could get a ruler even cheaper at Office Depot where they’re only a nickel.
