    Has anyone tried the glue sticks? Are the comparable to Elmer’s?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      My kids have used the glue sticks for many projects and I have found them to work very well! Hope that helps!

    • Josie

      I’ve had parents that have bought all of these items to contribute to our classroom, but sorry to say so much if it is of such poor quality that it’s useless. I especially dislike the Jot pencils that are s nightmare to sharpen with my school sharpener. I have a very good sharpener and the pencils have been a nightmare to sharpen. By the time I get it sharp it’s about half the size and took 5 minutes to get it like that. It is just garbage. The crayons and glue sticks are also for such poor quality that I cringe when this stuff gets “gifted” to us. Please parents, spend a few more dollars on brand name because there is a difference.

    to bad most of my kid’s list is brand specific items

    • xna tenny

      do you really have to stick to the brand? this is our first year i am having a real school list. and i am actually thinking do i really need to buy 3 pink erasers? and also, i know these are just a dollar… but for the quality and for the price is this a good deal?

      • Lauren

        The brands can be very important when it comes to quality. Also, there are some teachers that put things (like pencils) in a communal bin so that students can exchange them out. I also believe that some brands are more allergy-friendly.

  3. Ashley Harnish

    their school wants only Ticonderoga pencils, Crayola crayons, Fiskars scissors, elmers glue, black expo markers… the list goes on

    • OxoMicheleoxo

      Same as my childrens school… :/

    • Mel R.

      The reason why they want name brand is due to QUALITY! While $Tree stuff is ok for some things, most of it is JUNK and don’t work properly or don’t last as long. And some things like pens, index cards, tab dividers are much cheaper at Wags & Office Depot once the B2S sales start revving up at the end of the month.
      Why fork over $1 for a pencil sharpener that will stop working after a few wks b/c you gave your kid $1 junk pencils and the sharpener eats the wood up and the lead in constantly breaking? Ticonderoga pencils are THE BEST. They sharpen smoothly and the lead is far better and doesn’t break when the pencil drops.
      Spend a little more for the supplies and you won’t have to be replacing stuff by the 2nd month of school!!

      • Me

        I honestly don’t notice a difference between the Ticonderoga and the Office Depot pencils I have purchased for a penny. Just saying. Same for Rose Art vs Crayola crayons. Fiskars scissors vs Crayola scissors….not much difference. And my daughter is obsessed with a cheap pair of pink scissors that came with a craft set. If she had her way, she’d happily be cutting her paper with that pink pair.

        And really, folks, why does a kindergartener need 3 sets of Crayola 24 ct crayons? Or another kid need 36 pencils for the school year? That’s one pencil a week! I know there will always be low income kids, but I would consider my area affluent. It isn’t like there are tons of kids coming to school without supplies. I grew up using the same 24 ct crayon pack for multiple years throughout grade school. A 12 pack of pencils would last me several years.

        So teachers, any explanation? I’m honestly curious…how do kids go through one pencil per week on average?
        Are we secretly shipping pencils and crayons to less affluent school districts? I’d be cool with that.

    Our K-6 school puts all the pencils, crayons, glue sticks into a big pile and then everyone shares. I buy the cheap pencils, erasers etc and save lots every year. I do buy my crayons from Crayola and my markers. I think we have so much stuff in our basement from previous years so I am hoping for a low spend supply list this year.

  5. Angela

    Thank you so much!!! 🙂 This will be a great trip, so much in one place for good prices! You all are always so helpful! I have been using your site since way back when Collin first got started, she then and all of you now have really been so helpful through the years!

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aww, thank you so much for the sweet comment Angela AND for being such a long time reader! You are so welcome!

    FYI the binders are NOT good. I got them for my son and they didn’t lasted as long as the Avery brand. Also keep your eyes open because I was able to find crayola twistable color pencils and they are the BEST. I like them much better than the regular color pencils. They last much longer. I have seen them for $10 at target so this is a great deal.

    • Lindsay

      Totally agree. We bought some cute binders last year and they were falling apart by the second quarter. I’d stick with a name brand one. Just my two cents…and I love DT!

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for the honest feedback on the binders! I’m sorry to hear that they didn’t last very long for you!

  7. Cbalabama

    Completely agree!!

  8. Stephanie Link

    Our school specifically asks for Crayola crayons, and other name brand supplies. Crazy it’s a public school system too!
