    School ends tomorrow for us so this is a little hard to wrap my head around. Thankfully, Staples has had terrible BTS sales the last few years. Glad I stocked up a long time ago!

  2. Zara

    Seriously! My kids are still in school making up snow days!

  3. Janna

    Thanks! My kids have been out almost a month and go back August 6th!

    • Redgoldfish

      Why do they go back so early?

      • Jess

        I’m guessing because they’ve been already out for a month …

      • Denise G.

        I know at least for Southern California many schools have transitioned to finish before the Memorial Day holiday and go back early August.

    • Jesse!

      That’s how it is for my district too! We dismissed late May.

    • Ksantos128

      My kids have been out since the 24th of May! Enjoy your summer!!

    • Jennifer

      Mine go back on the 10th. We have also been out for a month so I am loving this deal!

  4. retireewannabe

    Are these good prices compared to later in the summer? What are everyone’s price points?

    • Tonia M

      These are the same prices you will see as others advertise bts sales. Some stores will offer .10 or .25 as we get closer to August.

      • Jess

        Bingo! The 25¢ stuff can drop to 10 or 15¢, and the 50¢ stuff can drop to 25¢, dollar stuff right now can drop to 50¢ as we get closer to August.

  5. Amber

    With year round school here where I am, I’m happy to see these school deals. Thanks for the post!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!


    We’ve been out since the wed before Memorial Day. We go back Aug 2nd

  7. Julia

    I think Walmart has crayons for $.25 when it gets closer to August. For back to school deals. I think the markers are the same price $.97

  8. Ksantos128

    Office depo and office max have penny deals! Well the past two years they have! Hopefully they have it this year, that’s my stock up price

  9. Mommy2Bear

    This would be a great deal if Office Depot did not just have the same products for cheaper earlier this month and allowed shipping rather then in store only.

  10. Scarlet B

    I love this post (because school supplies–love them) and hate this post (because it feels too soon). I guess I need to figure out what we need for this year for my elementary student.

    The high school doesn’t put out school supply lists–it was a rude awakening the first year I had a high schooler. Seemed like every day for 2 weeks he came home needing something else, and the sales were all done by then.

    • Sherri

      Try using the previous year’s supply list. There shouldn’t be many major changes in the supplies.

  11. K

    At Glendale AZ in Arrowhead area OfficeMax, the 1 subject notebooks were priced at .25 cents each. Don’t think this was advertised.

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great find! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Allison

    Collin, will you do an updated school price points list?? Pleaseeeee? 😀😀😀😀 (If not, will you at least post the old one? lol)

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Allison! This is in the works! Please keep a look out for it over the next week or two. 🙂

  13. momoffivepoikas

    Who wants my coupon for a $5 in store purchase? I don’t live near one and it expires on the 30th. Leave your email.

    • Pinky

      Can you please share with me
      My email reachalekhya at gmail dot com

    • Mamamia

      OMG thanks for reminding me about that!

  14. Allison

    Awesome! You guys rock!!

  15. Elizabeth Harwood

    I miss free paper!

    • Parla4

      Me too! I’m on my last ream and haven’t bought any in several years thanks to the deals Staples used to run. I’m sad knowing I have to go pay for some soon.

    • Dina

      I’ve been stocked up on paper for a while so haven’t been watching for paper sales. Is Staples no longer doing the $.01 or $1 paper?

  16. tctbtob

    Really? Couldn’t we just have the first day of summer without being reminded of school!?!? ; )

  17. Keesh

    I am sticking up before school starts back .

  18. scooge25

    We live in Phoenix and finished the end of May and go back the first week in August

  19. lealea42

    We track out for the year next Friday and my son tracks back in the last Friday in July. We have year round schools here, so some kids get out next Friday and go back the week after July 4th. This may be part of why sales are already starting. 😊

  20. Lovey004

    As a school supply junkie, I will probably grab an item or two. My high schooler never really knows what he needs until school starts. I’m patiently awaiting the Sharpie, MEAD notebook,& TUL (office depot) sale.

  21. Danielle Jeffrey

    NYC schools are still in session! Our first day of vacation is 6/27 : (
    Staples was thirsty this year. Back to school….we are STILL in school.

  22. Melissa Maloney

    I don’t care how cheap there items are. I would rather go pay a dollar extra just so none of my money is spent here. I live in Athens alabama an I went to staples years ago for an interview. I left in tears because both of the managers there basically bullied an belittled me until I felt like an idiot an peice of garbage. That to me says a lot about how they treat there employees an other customers. I still to this day can not get over how I was talked to an laughed at right in my face. I held back the tears until I got in my car. I was in total shock.

  23. karen moore

    Went to Staples yesterday and nothing was on sale. When I click the links in this post is also doesn’t show the lower prices. Am I missing something?

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      These are in store only so they won’t show online. Were you able to scan the items to see if they were possibly not marked correctly?

  24. Ilsa

    This is so offensive! We just got out of school last week, and I was hoping to relax before thinking about my classroom in September.

    I will take Staples off my list of places to shop.

    • Muche

      We got back to school in 7/23 so as ugly as it seems, it’s time for some of us to start shopping…enjoy your summer ahead while mine is over (and I’m a teacher too so noooooo):))

  25. mexblutiger

    Does that include wide rule preschool composition books? Needing those for my son who will be going to prek this year!

  26. Stephanie Spindler

    Thanks! My kids just got out Friday but before I lose the supply lists and /or forget to buy the supplies until last minute i snagged some of these. i had a $10 in store and $5 reward so i got almost all their stuff for only $3.14 out of pocket!

  27. Pam

    Check your e-mails! I just got a $5/$10 coupon from Staples. Expires July 2. That’ll buy a lot of crayons and markers!

  28. Bennie

    I will pair this deal with the $10 off $20 coupon I received via email!

  29. Mamamia

    I was able to score $.33 ($.50 by two get one free) colored uniball pens by the cashier, $.97 12 pack staple mechanical Pencils, and $3 for a clearance 24 pack.of felttip pens. I also picked up a bunch of the single and composite notebooks and some Crayola items.
