Over the last few weeks, I have received numerous emails from Hip2Save readers asking me to share my personal price points for school supplies. And I am happy to report that I have finally compiled a list for you! Yesterday, I spent several hours going through School Supply blog posts from the last 2 years or so in an effort to determine the absolute lowest price for popular items and the typical sale prices for items.
As an example, I determined that the price point for a 24 count box of Crayola Crayons is 25¢. In other words, I would stock up on Crayola Crayons whenever I find them priced at 25¢ or less. Since Back to School sales are already starting up again in full swing, you should have an opportunity to snag these crayons at this price or less if you just wait patiently over the next few weeks. And this same theory applies to all the school supplies on my list!
To view HIP’s School Supply Price Points, just click on this link or on the image above to print or save the PDF file to your computer! I would encourage you to consider printing it out and placing it in your Coupon Binder for reference when you are at the store. Or, if you’d rather, you can go here and save the Price Points document to your computer and edit/change the prices based on your personal shopping experiences!
DISCLAIMER: Note that several of the items on my list have the lowest price as FREE. Keep in mind that to get this FREE price, you may be required to make a minimum purchase (as is often the case at Staples) and/or to sign up for a Rewards Program or submit a rebate. Also note that these items may only be “free” once or twice per year – for this reason, I have given you a range.
