Now that July 4th weekend has come and gone, the back to school deals are beginning. You can start stocking up for the coming school year (or for your home office) a little each week with the available sales and coupons.

There are lots of bloggers out there covering these deals; here's links to some of the best I see for this week:


Crayola Crayons (24 ct) – $0.25/ea (limit 12)

Crayola Classic Markers (10 ct) – $1/ea (limit 12)

Paper Mate Pens (10 ct) – 3 for $1

Oxford Portfolio Folders – $0.15/ea

Kroger is also running a back to school supply catalina on specific brands: buy $10 of participating products, earn a $2 cat OYNO; buy $20, earn a $4 cat OYNO. Brands include: Expo, Papermate, Mead, Sharpie, Crayola, Avery, FiveStar, Uniball; this catalina is available from July 11 - August 21.

Important note: Several bloggers are reporting that the catalina is triggering based upon REGULAR prices, not sale prices, meaning potentially HUGE savings!

{Thanks to the tip from reader Daphne, last week, I bought 2 Crayola Markers on sale for $1 ea {reg price $3.49} and 7 Crayola 24 ct Crayons for $0.25 ea {reg $1.99} and earned a $4 catalina. Thanks for sharing!}

Don't forget that CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid are also starting to feature super-cheap (and even FREE) deals on back to school supplies as well. Click here to find this week's ad matchups for those stores.

One last note: most school districts have programs in place for lower-income students who need school supplies but can't afford them. You can put your mad coupon skillz to great use - grab a few extra deals while you're shopping and donate them to your local school. They will be much appreciated!
