When it comes to school supply purchases: are you like me – still picking up odds and ends even though school has started? Or are you the type of person who grabs those super cheap deals for future needs and craft supplies? OR, are you a parent who plans ahead for Holiday events, gifts and parties?
There are lots of ways you can take the supplies on sale right now and use them for future needs, (including gifts).
Check out these ideas:
- a well presented package of supplies for a teacher
- making a a homemade personalized journal from a normal bound notebook and covering it in paper.
- a travel kit for those long holiday drives to visit out of town family.
I am sure you can think up many other ideas….

Hubby and I had a little bit of alone time Saturday night and ran off to a local Sushi joint, but of course we finally did what most parents do on a night out- went to Walmart. We are looking around and pricing a new TV for our bedroom since the color seems to be going out on our current one- which is only a couple years old. We noticed that there seem to be some HUGE Rollbacks going on in the electronics department at Walmart. We saw a 36 inch 3D, HDTV Smart TV on sale for $350ish. If we didn’t have a self imposed spending limit for the moment- we would have grabbed it up. I saw the same deal in 2 other Walmart stores locally. Yes, I make my rounds- kinda like the Dollar Tree, and Goodwills too. You have to check in the different stores because you never know what you will find different.
A Couple deals I found at Dollar Tree include jello mold cups. Yes, think of the containers you buy ready made jello in at the store. Now, you can make up your jello and pour it into these mold cups that have removeable lids and bottoms, and save some money. These come in a 4-pack. I also grabbed some Natures Own Bread – HFCS free. And remember everything at Dollar Tree is just $1!
I plan to help bring you great products and deals to help save you $$ throughout the year. I will be compiling lists and deals that I find around the web and blog world that helps me. I love helping others save money. Just try not to hoard all the deals for yourself.
You can also find Printable coupons on my personal website : Begin To Craft. And yes, printing the coupons from my site does help support my own shopping habits to bring great deals to you!
