This year, I’m doing things a little bit different when it comes to Back to School deals. Instead of listing all the sale items at every store, I will be doing one weekly round-up with the best school school deals at all 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 2015 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.
