Remember when you were a kid and the 4th of July meant summer was just getting into full swing? You still had plenty of time for swimming, bike rides, and neighborhood games of kick the can.
If you pay attention to the retail sale cycles, you’ll know they’re all saying – Summer is OVER! Time to start thinking school supplies!
When I saw the Staples ad with 16 $1 school supply items right on the front cover, I felt the need to grab a paper bag in case I started hyperventilating. Didn’t I just drive my last carpool home? Aren’t I still in the middle of the luxurious break we call summer?
Then I found that Target just released a bunch of new printable school supply coupons that are making for some fantastic deals.
PaperMate Pens $1.02
- Use the $1/1 Target printable coupon to get for only .02!
Bic 10 ct Pens $1.02
- Use the $1/2 Target printable coupon to get for only .49/pack!
Scotch Tape $1.79
This isn’t all bad news. There is a silver lining. It’s called Summer Clearance Sales. While you are in gathering up some .02 pens, make sure you hit the clearance area. Because regardless of what the retail cycle says, there are still SEVEN more weeks of my summer left. And I plan of fully enjoying them! So look for those sales on the items your kids were begging you to buy, but you didn’t have the exorbitant sum on. Those items should be coming down in price.
Anyone up for a game of kick the can?
