I usually send in the optional items through out the year as I find a good deal on them. They are never not welcomed.

I need to take advantage of the back to school sales to stock up on some home office supplies.

I thought about going to get them at Dollar Tree, that's a great idea. Maybe I'll be able to go by on Tuesday when I'm off. It's tax free weekend in Texas and I don't want to deal with the crowds.

You guys should know that English ain't my bestest subject and that I have no room to talk about someone's grammar or play the grammar patrol, but I do see the confusion here.

She is saying that she takes school supplies to the school multiple times during the school year as she gets good deals on them. Her last sentence includes double negatives (never not), and double negatives convert to a positive. Therefore, she is saying that the school supplies are always welcomed. HTH

Great idea. I know most those items are at Dollar Tree or in the Dollar General $1 aisle. With the DG $1 aisle you can get a little off with the Saturday $5/$25.

There's also a $5/$15 digital Q at DG for school supplies. Download the DG app, create an account. Then, you just type in your cellphone number. I know they have some decent sales that are going on for school supplies right now.

I've been working a lot lately so not able to shop much. I have found amazing deals on clearance items in the past at the drug stores, Target and Walmart. There seem to be less coupons available this year. Target used to have more deals on their Up n Up stuff, but not so much now. As soon as the dust clears at work, I'll be hoping to find some items in the end of season sales.

My favorites from those deals last year were the 20 cent composition books at Target as well as the free pens and pencils because of the Bic coupons. We didn't get lots of the other coupons in our inserts here for some reason (no PaperMate or Elmers for example) so that's less.

I took a couple of boxes to the local elementary school last year. I don't have kids, so they were surprised that I descended upon them with gifts of spiral notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, glue sticks, etc. It's only a couple blocks from my house and I figure the local taxes don't go very far to help with school supplies, plus there are some poor kids who go there who may not be able to afford them.

Thats,so sweet of you. I have been wondering I haven't seen any advertised school drives for supplies..normally around here..I'd love to donate all the free Bic items I'm grabbing on sales or even at dt after qs makes them free.

If there is a Boys and Girls club near you, I'm pretty sure they distribute school supplies, too.
