Keep your eye out for FREE school supplies at CVS over the next several weeks.  As far as I can tell, there seem to be many many free after ECB school supplies coming up.  I see free pens, pencils, book covers, notebooks, scissors, glue, rulers, and more!  CVS is changing their store brand to “Caliber” and using this as an opportunity to clear out the CVS brand items.  If you don’t yet have a CVS card, run out and get one!

I took advantage of a great deal yesterday, and Anne Marie was kind enough to remind me to blog this 🙂  KMart has Crayola Primary Watercolors for 99 cents.  Last year, I never found these less than $1.99.  They also have 10-packs of Crayola Markers for $1.49.  This is on the K3 list at CPCS.  And they have 12-packs of Crayola Colored Pencils for 99 cents.  Many need 24-packs, but this is a good deal for at-home artwork.

Also, CVS has 10-counts of CVS Pencils or a Pencil Sharpener FREE after ECBs… limit 3.  I stated in a previous entry that this was through Monday, but it is indeed for the whole week!


School Supplies

Next year’s school supply list came home last week.  I’ll keep my eyes open for the best deals that I can pass along to you.  I keep a bin in the basement for cheap school supplies that I find.  For instance, I got those expensive plastic folders on clearance last September for 19 cents each.  And I found Fiskers kid’s scissors for 49 cents a few weeks back.  Here’s what I see this week that was on my list…

Pump bottles of hand sanitizer… 69 cents at Jewel thru at least Wednesday

Tubs of Huggies wipes (I need 6!)… $2.50 at CVS this week (use $1 off Huggies Bath and Body coupon=$1.50/tub)
