When shopping for school supplies, having to get two of everything because I have two kids means every cent I save adds up. Knowing that teachers need help with their classrooms is something that I really want to get behind and the extra savings is the perfect way to help teachers stock up their classrooms. Teachers work so hard and deserve so much. They take care of our children for 6 to 8 hours depending on what grade they are in and what extra-curricular activities they take on. They put their heart and soul into teaching at times. I think everyone I know could name a teacher that impacted their lives, some people could name a couple. I know I have a few that did different things for me throughout my life. That’s probably one of the reasons that I’m so passionate about teachers and feel it’s important to make sure that my kids appreciate teachers too. So while we are out saving money on our own school supplies we try to also get a few extras on their school supply lists to just let the teachers keep in their supply closets. I’ve done this every year.
We saved so much money on the kids’ school supply list this year shopping at Staples and I love that Staples makes it possible for families and teachers to be able to afford the most needed items in the class room. Staples has the Back to School 110% Lowest Price Guarantee. This is where if you find an item cheaper somewhere else they will match the price and give you 10 percent more off. That’s such a great deal. The Staples Back to School 110% Lowest Price Guarantee gives parents the lowest prices period.
Then there is also the Less List. The Staples Less List is a list of school supplies that are in highest demand. In order for parents to get what they need and for teachers to stock up, Staples keeps these items very low. These items include 1-subject notebook (25¢), 2-pocket folders (15¢), index cards (48¢), composition books (50¢) and 24-pack Crayola crayons (50¢) and rulers.
Staples will offer Extreme Deals in its weekly circular and online at www.staples.com/weeklyad . Be sure to check it weekly for the current extreme deals. I had a great time myself with my kids looking for all kinds of supplies to create an amazing gift basket for a teacher near us, not to mention the school supplies they needed individually.
Another great way to save is to join the Staples Rewards. With Staples Rewards or Teacher Rewards, members earn up to 5% back in Rewards and receive free shipping on Staples.com orders.
