My Sweet Savings’ 2019 Printable School Supply Price Point List + Tips for Back to School Shopping

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

If you have not already started your back to school shopping for the kiddos, now is the time to do so! We are starting to see some really great sales, and I am going to do my best to keep you posted on the best deals that I see at many of the stores.

While it may be more challenging these days to find good deals on school supplies, there are still ways that it can be done.

Here are a few tips to help as you plan your back to school shopping:

  • Start your shopping early and have a plan of action. Have the kid’s back to school list handy and know exactly what items that you are looking for. You don’t want to be shopping for items the week for school starts. Shopping early not only alleviates stress, but it allows you to score the best deals!
  • Shop at several stores to get the most bang for your buck. I often find that if you spend your entire budget at one store, you will end up spending more than you had originally planned. This does require some time and effort, but it is worth it! Purchase the newspaper on Sunday and see what stores have the best deals for the items on your kids’ school supply list and make a plan of action from there.
  • Be aware of limits on products. Many stores will limit the amount of products that you can purchase if there a special discount on that item. For example, you may only be able to purchase 5 notebooks for $0.10 each per person. Plan to take several people with you if you need more than the required limit.
  • Coupons are still alive and well! I have noticed several coupons both online and paper for school supply items. Don’t be afraid to utilize those to help you maximize your budget even more! For example, there was coupon in the newspaper this past Sunday for $1.50 off 2 BIC Stationery products. BIC Pens are priced around $1 at most stores so this coupon will get you 2 packs of pens for just $0.50! And, $0.25 per package of pens is definitely a stock up price and under my price point per package! (please keep in mind that most coupons now have a limit on them)
  • Have a product swap with friends. You may be surprised of the items that you have laying around the house that are brand new school supplies. Get your friends together and see what they have. You could save a few dollars and have a fun time doing it!
  • Thrift Stores– You can find some great hidden gems at your local thrift store! I have seen items with the tags still attached for a fraction of the price that you would pay at your local store.
  • School clothes closet sales. Check to see if your kid’s school has a closet sale of uniforms and other items that have been left behind. I just bought my boys’ uniform shirts and jackets (their school has a required logo shirt) that were in like-new condition for only $5 each!
  • Stack the savings! This is probably one of my biggest tips for ways that you can save on school supplies. When you stack store promotional offers and coupons with discounts and rewards you can save BIG! And, don’t forget at places like Target you will save an extra 5% off when you use your Target REDcard! If you don’t have a Target REDcard, consider shopping with a credit card that will earn you cash back or points.
  •  Know the price points of school supplies and what you should be paying for those items. I have put together a list below of my price points for school supplies. You may be able to find these items even cheaper than I have posted. If you do, stock up! You can click on the image below or print the list HERE and keep it with you for when you are shopping!

Code Ninjas Summer Camps: Where Your Kids Become Coding Ninjas!

Code Ninjas partners with families to provide children with a safe and encouraging environment to gain the skills they need for a brighter future. While this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Summer Break. Ahhh…My boys have officially been out of school now for over one week, and I have already heard those dreaded words, “I’m bored!” For me, summer break can actually be a lot of work as I have to make sure that I keep the boys busy with activities. We joined our local YMCA, will be doing a lot of reading, bowling, watching movies and visiting friends. Of course, the boys also love to play on the computer with their favorite video games. While I do like to limit the amount of time that they spend on the computer each day, some of the games can actually be a great learning experience for them!

This summer, my boys are going to have the time of their life as they learn to spark their imagination all by building their very own video games! Thanks to Code Ninjas Summer Camps, the boys will build their favorite computer games from the ground up all combined with the power of coding!

What is Code Ninjas? 

We all know that kids love technology, games, and having fun with friends. Code Ninjas provides an engaging game-based curriculum that teaches teamwork, logic, math, and problem solving so kids will gain vital skills while having a blast! As a parent, it is important to me that my children not only have fun during the summer but that I am giving them the best future possible and that they are learning! Code Ninjas sounds like a win-win to me!  😉 

Technology is such an amazing thing isn’t it? When I was in college over 20 years ago, I remember my hubby and I sending emails back and forth to each other through AOL just like on the movie, “You’ve Got Mail!” Texting was not even heard of, and the only phone that I had was one of those older flip phones. Boy, things have come a long way! My boys know more about electronics now than me!  😆 Code Ninjas believes that there’s never been a more exciting time to advance our culture – starting with our youngest ones. Every kid deserves the chance to unlock their innate, unlimited capacity to learn. 

Whether or not they pursue coding as a career, Code Ninjas wants to provide kids with skills that will help them pursue their dreams. I love that they will also teach our children to learn how to think and problem solve. In fact, that is one of the core values of Code Ninjas!

Do you think that your kiddos would benefit from a Summer Camp at Code Ninjas?
