    Staples has the 72 pack of Ticonderoga sharpened pencils for $12!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Cool find! Thanks for sharing Brianna!

    • Julie

      Also have 12 ct for $1 at staples this week.

  2. Deirdre

    Thanks Briana

  3. Emily

    I wanted the disappearing purple glue sticks, so i ordered them in 2-packs from Target. The 2-pack is 50 cents. I ordered 15 of them. After Red Card amd free shipping, it was cheaper than the Amazon deal and I had the purple feature.

  4. kristi s.

    That’s actually how many pencils my oldest needs for school! Thank you!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

    This is a real question, not being smart. My daughter’s school asks for everything, all throughout the year. My husband’s school teachers get $250/yr to spend in their classrooms. Are there teachers that are providing all of the kids supplies from their pockets?? That is asking way too much of a teacher IMO.

    • Patsy Scott

      Many kids parents don’t buy the school supplies they are required to. My husband easily spends $250 in buying these supplies for the kids. In my opinion, the school should provide them if they kids don’t buy them, it shouldn’t come out of the teachers pockets.

    • Sarah

      Plus school supply lists don’t always cover everything that kids need, and sometimes certain things run out partway through the year and need replenished- kleenex, glue sticks (that’s why the numbers seem high on those sometimes, they dry out and lids get easily lost). It’s always been appreciated when I ask teachers if they need anything halfway through the year.

    • Lisa

      I’m a teacher. We ask parents to buy school supplies, but only about 50% do, and only about 10% will replenish supplies if they run out mid year. I do buy extras to cover what isn’t provided. I also get $150 per year but I prefer to use that for teaching instructional materials. Hope that helps!

    • Lee

      Many teachers do not receive funding to buy materials for their classroom so we must purchase all of our own supplies. I teach in the Fort Worth, Texas area and I am not given a single dollar for classroom supplies. I can write up a request of what I need and what it will be used for. My principal is not allowed to approve “consumable” materials. Our school has been fortunate and have partnered with a local organization that helps provide school supplies. Most teachers purchase a large amount of school supplies at this time of year because they are so cheap. I know exactly how many glue sticks I need to buy to get me through the school year:) To be honest, my current school is the first in all my years of teaching to provide office supplies– staples, paper clips, tape, etc. Not having to pay for those has freed up more money for school supplies. Most parents, especially low income, cannot provide supplies throughout the year. Continue to be supportive of your child’s teacher it is greatly appreciated.

    • Nana

      I have been teaching for 35 years…I have yet to meet one teacher who has not purchased school supplies; as well as clothing, shoes, soap, personal hygiene items, snacks, classroom books, and much, much more. Buy some extra stuff and donate it to your child’s teacher…they will be thankful… Yes…things are much better than when I first started teaching—but every classroom has a handful of children who need an extra hand.

      Oh, one more thing—when parents are complaining about teachers asking for school supplies…don’t be silent, support your teachers!

    • M. Bailey

      Where I teach, we can only ask for school supplies. We can have a wish list of items like Kleenex and Clorox wipes. However, these items cannot be on the school list. Also, I don’t do the community supplies. I let each student use the supplies they bring. Then, when they run out, I know what parent to ask. However, if I have students that do not have supplies, I give them a start up set to use.

  6. Sarah

    Teachers! Stop spending your own money on supplies. Since 2008, I have received close to $40,000 worth of supplies and materials thanks to DonorsChoose.org. All public school teachers are eligible. All you have to do is create an account and post a project.

    • Lee

      As a public school teacher I also use Donor’s Choose, but have had several projects unfunded. Also, our district has implemented a paper trail system when we use this program and it is now more work for the teachers. Some of our teachers are not allowed to take materials earned at their school to another school in the district (same population as their current school), so it is limiting and frustrating our teachers.
