I got the list when I went to register him into kindergarten in April of this year, I’m kinda surprised because most of time, the lists comes in the summer at Walmart. So to take an advantage of this, I crossed out of the items that I have bought over the year while couponing.
This is the reason why I love couponing! You pay less than nothing or free! For example, in the list, it asks for 2 baby wipes. WHAT?! I have million of those stocked in my bathroom closet. In fact, they were free after coupon and gas reward at Martin’s! You can’t beat that! I also happened to score fourty-eight 4oz elmers glues at Martin’s for 32 cents each in June of this year! It also asked to get 2 ziploc gallon bags. I scored those for $1 each after UP+ and coupon at Rite Aid!
July is the best month to stock up on school supplies. I was able to score fifty elmers glue sticks and 4 pens for $1 after coupon at Walmart. So, yes it’s possible that you can get them for dirty cheap. At Staples, I scored 2 paper prints, 2 calendar, 12 small storage boxes, 4(4) 4 ct sharpies, super glues and binder staples for $42 and will get $24 deposited in my paypal account. I LOVE IT! I also scored (4) 24 ct crayola crayons for $1.16, they are 29 cents each at Kroger! It’s fun to see how much money I’m able to save this month. I will calculate after I get all of his supplies together! Here is the list
