Like last year, I will be writing a once-weekly post with all of the best school school deals at each of the stores.
It’s my hope that this format will help to consolidate your shopping – and make it even easier for you to score the very best deals on all your back to school necessities.
Don’t forget to check my 2016 Back to School Price List – so you know what you should be paying for all your supplies.
School supply sales tend to be regional, so confirm these prices with your ads before heading out to the store.
