Many of the office supply stores are running their deals regionally this summer. They are staggering sales depending on when certain regions head back to school. The sales I post are based on the Kansas City paper, so be sure to check your circulars before heading out the door.

    Your suggestion to price match at Target and then use a Target Q won’t work. They consider the price after their TQ to be their “sale price”, so when you go to customer service after completing your transaction they’ll tell you your Target price was better than the match price. You have to choose the price match or the TQ. You can still put a MQ after the match.

    Also, I had a couple observations from the Staples ad which will be on my list:
    $1 for the bigger plastic pencil boxes. The smaller ones were 50c last week, but they don’t fit all the stuff well. DD’s been asking for a big one and now that it’s on sale, I’ll probably indulge.
    $3 for a 10 pack of poster boards. We no doubt have many more posters in our future, so 30c/board sounds like a good investment.

    • Thanks so much for the heads up on Target – good to know that they don’t take store coupons on top of price match. (I’ve yet to PM at Target – can you tell?! ;-))

      Those poster boards were a smidge cheaper this past week at Wags, but you’re right, it’s not a huge different ($.03 each). And I hear you on the bigger boxes. Fortunately we don’t need those yet on our list!
