  1. Nichole

    Thank you for making this on one post. Greatly appreciated.
    Is Dollar tree on there?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are so welcome! You can see Dollar Tree here, Nichole!

  2. Jennifer L.

    Love this one post with the deals, keep doing these weekly, please! My family did awesome at Staples with the sales plus $5 off $25 this week. Excited to see what’s on sale next week!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We will keep them coming, Jennifer L.!

  3. Sam

    Any nap mat deals?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m not seeing any right now, Sam, but I do find some really cute ones at Target here.

  4. Meh

    Thanks for the post. Just FYI, my Staples (Sacramento, CA) has the pencils for $1.97 😢

    • Donna

      I was at Staples today…there was one section that said the pencils were $1.97, and a different section with the .97 price. I would scan them or ask for a price check – mine rang up at .97

    • Another Shelly

      At our local Staples, none of these sale prices work. Everything is regularly priced. There was another woman who arrived at the same time as me looking for the deals. The employees didn’t have a good explanation for why they weren’t honoring the prices.

  5. Allison M.

    I know it’s not a fantastic price, but I did see Ticonderoga pencils (4pk) at the Dollar Tree yesterday 🙂

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Allison M.!

  6. Deidra

    I miss the back-to-school haul/deals videos! 😊

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’ll pass this along to the team! Thanks, Deidra!

  7. Tammy

    The Staples coupon that gets texted, do they use the number from the text or is there a scannable part to the coupon? If I click on mine it doesn’t show a coupon. Just details of the coupon

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Other readers said they had a “press here” button that they pressed and then a barcode came up. Hope this helps, Tammy!

    • Donna

      Same here Tammy. I didn’t have a scannable code, but they manually entered the code from my text message at checkout, and it worked

      • Tammy

        Thanks Donna! I was wondering if they could do that, good to know it worked for you that way.

    • Leslie

      When i checked out they typed in the number that i received in my text

  8. Debbie

    Thanks Hip2Save! My daughter is a new teacher and I went and stocked up on stuff to donate to her classroom. I appreciate the early deals, as I didn’t want to have to fight the crowds, but still got some steals.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome, Debbie!

  9. Diana

    Got my staples deals and used $5 off. $10 coupon 🙂 got 2 already 😉

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)


  10. Brenda

    Help I am new to this area, how does this deals work

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Brenda! Just click on the links above to access the deals you want!

  11. AE

    If anyone has an email coupon for $5 or $10 they aren’t going to use I would appreciate it. Trying to stock up to make back to school baskets for all the teachers in my kid’s school. hwsgigles8 at hotmail. Thanks!!!

  12. Nancy

    If you have a family dollar nearby, crayola crayons on sale for .50 but ringing up 25.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome, we will look for those! Thanks, Nancy!

  13. Alicia

    Has anyone seen any deals on the extra large glue sticks(1.27 oz or so)? I haven’t really seen them on sale yet and that’s what we need this year.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      The best deal I’m seeing right now is on Amazon here or here. Clip the 20% off coupon and you’ll pay as low as $5.43 for a 6-Pack. If you don’t have prime, you can also click Subscribe & Save to get free shipping.

      • Alicia

        Great,thanks for letting me know! I’ll have to check it out.

    • Obler

      Kroger (Fry’s where I live) has the Avery brand 1.27oz this week for $1.00.

      • Alicia

        Thanks! I’ll look into this too.

  14. Ana

    Anyone seen crayola washable markers on sale?? I need these and see the regular markers but not the washable

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Not yet, but we will be sure to let you know as soon as we do, Ana!

    • Emily

      Publix if you live in the south! $2

  15. Lisa

    I have a special needs baby and would like to do all my shopping online this year. Any suggestions? I would prefer to shop Walmart online and pick up in store. Does anyone know if this will work?

  16. Sarah

    I had a $10 off of $10 purchase coupon for Staples and my 2nd graders back to school list wasn’t very big so I was able to get just about everything for just $2.50! Just have tissues and sticky notes to get 🙂 Score!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! That’s awesome!

  17. Casey Meyers

    Thanks for sharing. I donate at Walmart every year.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How sweet! You’re very welcome!

  18. Hunterwoody

    Any Ticonderoga deals if you don’t have a staples?😭😭😭. We need pencils.

  19. Katie


    Where is the best place to shop character bookbags? We went to our Target yesterday and their options were very limited. It is my daughter’s first year starting school, so we were hoping to take her somewhere to make a fun experience out of it. (Looking for Disney Princesses mostly 😉 ) Thanks!

    • Mari

      The Disney store, they always have good deals on backpacks this time of year. My daughter has had her rapunzel backpack and lunch bag since kindergarten and she wants to use it this year too (she’s starting 2nd grade) they still look new, I’m very impressed since character backpacks usually fall apart fast

  20. Kristina

    I checked my email and I had a $10 off $20+ in school supplies coupon from Staples. Woohoo!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Happy shopping!

  21. Amanda

    I went to Staples yesterday and got some great deals, including a liter of hand sanitizer for $1.96! I have also found Walgreens to be a good place to shop for back to school stuff. Right now, you can get 6 erasers or folders for $1.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for sharing your finds with us, Amanda!

  22. Bethany

    Has target started sales on name brand school items? I looked through your weekly deals for target and only saw the up&up brand listed.

    Also, what is a good price point for crayons twistable crayons? I didn’t see them on the school supplies “stock up” list. Thanks!

  23. BeccaF

    When is the staples sale over?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Staples is through July 13th, but they will be having awesome school deals all summer!
