Welcome back for week five of The Krazy Coupon Lady's back-to-school deals! This year, in addition to the back-to-school deals we share every Sunday (and in lieu of back-to-school videos), we're publishing this weekly post—a best-of B2S shopping list! Keep following this guide every week, and you'll have more than enough school and office supplies to last the rest of the year! These prices are valid 8/4 – 8/10. In a typical week, Joanie and I shop and get pictures of all the deals. This week, we were unable to shop (we were busy preparing for something else that we can’t wait to tell you about!!), but here are the best deals:

 

Office Depot

Vinyl Binder Storage Pouch $0.01

Limit 3
This is the second week in a row we’ve seen these for a penny, so stock up if they’re on your list. 

 

Office Depot 2-Pocket Poly Folders $0.25

Limit 10
This is the lowest price we’ve seen on these poly folders this year or last year! For the paper version, we stock up at $0.10 or less. Compare to $0.50 at Walmart.

This is also the lowest price we’ve seen this year or last year. Most office supply stores are selling these for $2.00. At Walmart they are priced at $1.74. 

 

OfficeMax

Paper Mate Write Bros Ballpoint Pens, 10 ct $0.10

Limit 3
We stock up on pens at a quarter or under, so this is a great price, especially if you didn’t get the $1.00/1 Bic coupon from the 8/4 coupon insert. 

 

OfficeMax Glue Sticks, 4 ct $0.25

Limit 3
Glue sticks are a stock up price at $0.12 each or less and these are almost half that price!

We only saw these go under a dime two times last year, so stock up while you can. The Max Value items this week (and subsequently do not count toward the $5.00 threshold) are the glue sticks, ballpoint pens, filler paper, poly binders and Bic pencils. We recommend buying the pencils and Bic Wite-Out to reach your minimum. 

 

Just Basics Yellow #2 Pencils, 72 ct $2.00

With-In Ad Coupon, Limit 3
At just under $0.03 per pencil, this is a great stock up price! For higher-end brands like USA Gold or Ticonderoga, look for them to be $0.07-$0.10 per pencil, while mechanical pencils should be $0.05 each or less.

Standard one inch binders are a great stock up at $1.00 or under, and for a brand name durable binder, this is a steal!

A good rule of thumb is to pay less than $1.00 per GB with flash drives, so this is a great deal for a name brand.
