Walmart is kicking off the back to school savings season! This week (7/5/09-7/11/09), they're offering 70 page spiral notebooks for 25c, Elmers Washable Glue (4 oz) for 30c and Crayola 24ct Crayons for 30c.
Toys R Us is also getting started by offering a free lunch kit (valued at $9.99) with any backpack valued at $12.99 or more (excluding Adidas). If you're planning on packing your kids a healthy lunch, be sure to check out my post on how you can get an amazing deal on organic apple juice boxes here.
Last year the real deals started the week of July 20 and the best deals lasted three weeks. Stay tuned next week for even more savings (last year we got lots of crayons, pens, pads of paper and more for free - I got supplies not only for my kids but stocked up on a years worth of office supplies too). If you know anyone with kids, let them know about my blog. By subscribing, you'll get a recap each week of the hottest deals for this back to school season.
