Also Office Max has a brown bag in Sunday paper. In my area of TN anyway. Everything that fixs in the bag get's 20% off so that will make some sweet deals on school supplies with some items almost free or free.

When our daughter, Casey, was in school, we saved unused supplies at the end of one school year so we wouldn’t have to buy them again at the beginning of the next one. Naturally, after two months had gone by, we forgot where we put them. I suspect there are crates of construction paper and pencil cases somewhere in our garage.

Come late August, the schools would send out a supply list in advance, and we’d dutifully buy everything on it, only to find out there was one thing they’d left off, so we’d have to fight off the crowds in Staples the day after the schools opened, which was only marginally better than going to Walmart the day after Thanksgiving. Yes, there we’d be, combing the shelves for a very specific type of three-section notebook with pockets in the covers and reinforced holes and tabbed indexing and spiral binding and college rules (even though this was middle school--Casey was so advanced). And it was, of course, the same notebook all the other parents were looking for because it had been left off their lists, too. And Staples would have exactly two of them in stock.
