Tomorrow is the big day! My daughter starts the first grade. I am really excited, it actually feels like Christmas to me. I am so ready for us to get back into the routine of things.
You probably remember the long school supply list that I posted back in July. I am excited to report that I ended up getting everything on the list for about $40! I estimate that the entire list cost about $100 without any sales. It’s amazing how much you can save when you are a bargain hunter. And that everything we save on isn’t necessarily food.
My favorite bargain was the 1 cent copy paper that we got at Staples about a month ago. That stuff is expensive and I was able to get 2 packs for 2 cents! What was your favorite deal?
So how did you fare on the school supply list? Did you break the bank or did you manage to keep it in the green? I’d love to hear how your school supply shopping has gone!
Oh and if you missed it on my Facebook wall, the Wall Street Journal interviewed me about my back to school shopping! The article ran last week. It was such an honor to be published in the Wall Street Journal!
