It has been a while since I have even visited this blog. Much has happened and changed since I last wrote, however, that story is a whole other blog post. I just wanted to share some back to school deals that are going on in the Phoenix area of Arizona for both teachers and parents who come across this post.
I am going to make my list by school supply type instead of each store and their deals. This list is not all inclusive. I have only included items that are usually purchased by classroom teachers over and over again.
*Office Max on Bell and 83rd Ave has their entire clearance section marked 50% off (reduction taken at register). I scored a new X-acto electric pencil sharpener for $9.00.
(Staples) Staples Pencils 12 count $0.68 (possible limit of 3, but may sell more to a teacher)
(Target) Up & Up Presharpened Wood Pencils 24ct, 2 packs for $4
*You will notice that I did not include deals on mechanical pencils. That is because I (and many other teachers) hate it when students show up with them, therefor, I do not find them useful to include on this list. However, if you want to buy some mechanical pencils for yourself, 12 packs are on sale at Office Max for $2.00.
(Staples) Crayola Markers 10 ct. $0.97
(Target) Sharpie 4 ct. 2 for $4
(Office Max) Crayola Dry Erase Markers 4 ct. $3.00
(Wal-Mart) CraZart markers 10 ct. $0.50 each and no limit to how many packs. I purchased 20 packs at the self check out without a problem.
Packaging Tape for Nametags:
(Office Max) Scotch packaging tape $2
These are the major deals of note that I have recently scored. If you know of other deals in the Phoenix area, feel free to post in the comments.
Single Subject Spiral Notebook:
(Staples) 4 pack staples brand glue sticks $0.25
(Staples) Staples brand white liquid glue $0.10
(Staples) Staples brand cap erasers pack (these suck in quality by the way) $0.25
