    I don’t have a Walgreen’s local to me, but would love those Ticondaroga pencils. I’ve been to walmart and dollar general a few times hoping to find school supplies on discount. As of yesterday, no markdowns at DG, but I managed to get filler paper for next year at walmart (just being marked down).

    When can I expect prices to lower in these stores? (Or will they not?) Hoping to stock up for next year and grab some things that kids tend to need replaced by the second half of the year.

    I went yesterday and there was zero left at my Wags.

      Mine too. I got a couple zippered pencil holders but they were only half off. I needed them or I wouldn’t have even bothered.

    I went yesterday and had to tell the cashier that things weren’t ringing up right. Held the line up for price checks. Then, got out of there and noticed later that one of the things that was ‘adjusted’ was never taken off from the original time it rang up. Basically, I WAY overpaid for some pens. Grrrr…. πŸ™ Worst part?? I didn’t even NEED pens πŸ˜‰

    • Mouy

      Take them back and get a price adjustment. One of the items I bought yesterday went through at full price. Luckily I noticed in the car so I popped back in and got the difference in prove back in my pocket!

      • Mouy

        Price* not prove lol

    • Julie B.

      I did the same- everything rang up normal price. It was frustrating.

  4. Rosie

    I went today and they have tons here, but I didn’t see any clearance signs. Is this regional?

    • lancy

      have it price checked. tell them most stores are 90% off already

      • Rosie

        I went back, had the manager price check and everything is still regular price.

  5. Ann Dee

    The one in Vernal, UT doesn’t have anything marked so I had to do a lot of price checking. Held up the line but got a few things. No cute pencil bags or 3 hole punch or super cheap stuff (employees had already gone through and bought it up, but that’s their bonus for working there, I guess). I did get a few backpacks, a couple of lunch totes, a few stripey pencil packs, 60 cent dive sticks, etc. It was fun and luckily the cashier was super nice! Thanks for the post or I would’ve never known!😊

      Or just customers. I went in the morning and there was so much stuff there but I didn’t realize it had been marked down. Went back later everything was gone. I rung up one lady that bought out all our pencils. I got one planner but I really wanted a monster pencil case. Just one….

      • Ann Dee

        I know, right? Lol. I just wanted one monster pencil case, too. So cute. My mom went to one by her house in Salt Lake City and the cashier told her that a teacher came in and bought all 150 notebooks, folders, pencils, etc. Smart teacher! Can’t argue with that! Talk about going to a good cause! ☺️

      • Gina

        I GOT twenty Monster cases LAST night for 60c each. They wasn’t marked down but after I ask manager he said yes they are 60c πŸ˜‰

    Walgreen in MIAMI has buy 1 get 1 50%

  7. Julie B.

    I went the other day, and got a Minnie Mouse backpack for 2.99, sharpies for 44 cents, dry erase calendars for the fridge for $3.99 and two scarves for $1.49 each.

    • Amy

      The minnie pack at mine was 19.99.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sweet deals!

  8. livdavis

    I went to the one in Hurricane, WV last night and there is no sign and everything is still regular price. I had them price check several items.

  9. Em

    Thank you so much for posting about this yesterday. I went to three Walgreens here, two had backpacks for 50 cents, one did not have stuff marked down too much because they were still putting clearance tags on things. I was still able to get some awesome deals, though! Summer toys were also 70-90% off!

  10. Tina

    I went this morning and my Walgreens didn’t have any school supplies left πŸ™

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh bummer! πŸ™ Sorry to hear they were sold out!

  11. Brindha

    Just scored stuff for 15$ orginal price 135$ approx in the 2nd Walgreens I visited near me in Cleveland oh. Almost everything was 90% off except few were 75% to 85% off. Everything was marked 70% off only. Wish they had a price scanner like cvs. Thanks a lot Collin and the helpful hip2savers πŸ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Super glad to hear you could snag such awesome savings! You are most welcome! πŸ˜€

  12. Jamie Foster

    Just took a trip there and scored TONS of stuff – $1.09 backpacks, $0.07 highlighters, and lots more. My total savings was 79% off! I also found TONS of toys for my toy closet and summer items marked WAY down. Clearance is super regional, but there seemed to be a lot of clearance all over the store.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for sharing your finds Jamie! Happy to hear you could snag some deals!

  13. Rosie

    Nothing in Central Florida, just went to a few Walgreens. I aslo hate they don’t have price scanners and the workers hate price checking…

    • laureen

      Yeah it looks bad on our reports… I wish we had a price checker too

  14. Vasu reddy

    Just back from Walgreen bought couple of back packs at $.50 and $1.50 and summer stuff which were on 90% clearance. Thank you for the post.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

  15. thehenrydthoreau

    This is very, very, very YMMV. I went to three stores. Two only had the lunch bags marked down, the third had cleared everything out for Halloween.

  16. AnnaD

    My store was still hanging at 50% off, some even came up regular price. Bummed about it.

  17. Dee

    Our store is still 50% off but the summer items such as sandals , goggles , swimming items are 90% off. So it was a good .

  18. Tiffany

    I was super lucky to find a 5 pack of Sharpies for $.60 and a 4 pack of Pilot metallic pens for $.70. I also had to grab a 4 pk Expo markers w/ eraser and cleaner for $1.19 (good for next year or a teacher happy!!!). Oh yeah, got .5 pencil leads for $.15 for a 30 pc container.

  19. Annie

    I went last Friday and got 17 5×7 patterned notebooks for $11. Needed them for a women’s retreat our church is hosting soon. Some of them rang up for .09, .74 and .99. I was pleasantly surprised by the .09 ones! 😁😁

  20. L

    I went to two different stores in Ny area and they were already replacing the school clearance with Halloween stuff. Only things left were a few $.50 backpacks.?

  21. erika

    Is anyone having trouble with print out coupons at walgreens? I was told that their not taking black and white copies, only colored. That a waist of inc for me.they raised it up by the light like a 20 dollar bill, like if it was a counterfeit bill. Lol that’s why I don’t bother with walgreens anymore.

    • SJ

      What were they expecting to find? A watermark?!
