Still Need School Supplies?

Whether we are ready or not, the school year is up on us and it’s time to rock and roll. About two weeks ago, I was so proud that I had accomplished everything and bought all of the kids school supplies on-line. I love on-line shopping, and I knew I did a great job for my three kids. Except for the baby composition notebooks.

You see, I’ve quickly found that when you are buying things on-line, you must read the description of what you’re buying, as items in the photo may look bigger than they are in really life.

The kids and I are still laughing about the “baby journals” that I bought but once I figured out that I needed to buy a few more items, I did what any good mom would do. I posed the question on Facebook. Where are the best places to buy school supplies?

And here are the responses I received:

  1. Office Depot (in-store and on-line)
  2. Walmart
  3. Big Lots

By far, the most responses I received were for Office Depot/ Office Max. However, I received one suggestion that you can take the Office Depot weekly ad to Walmart and they will price match. And if you use Walmart Savings Catcher, if you make your purchases at Walmart, the app will check to see if there are better deals and reimburse you the difference.

I did my shopping for school supplies at Office Depot on-line and had a fabulous experience. The baby journal incident was totally my fault, not theirs, and some of the items were delivered the very next day!

And just because I want you to enjoy the baby journal experience in photos…here you are.
