Yes, it's that time of month! It's back-to-school season and the deals are in! Earlier this week, I went to Office Depot and picked up some one cent college paper for my son. I also snagged some awesome pencil deals and some crayons and colored ones too for the little ones at Walmart. Those are the two stores right now who have the best deals for back to school supplies. I'd like to say Staples, but personally, there's not a close one to my home to actually apply it.
This week Target has a bonus on kids apparel. Purchase $25 worth and get a $5 Target gift card; purchase $40 worth and get a $10 a Target gift card. You can find the coupon for this in this week's Target weekly ad or download the coupon into your Target cartwheel cart.
If your child goes to a school that requires uniforms, the collard tops are on sale for $5 and then bottoms are $10. Then, add the coupons and you've saved yourself at least $15 off. Wouldn't you like to use that $15 towards the school supplies? Reminder, Target price matches so go to guest services and compare. Keep in mind though, that if you price match, the coupon attached to that item is not valid per their policy.
I also got some snacks. Check out this Nabisco deal...

(I had 4 coupons, so I got 8 bags)
By the way, if you're looking for an awesome backpack. I found a five piece set down in the National City target area for $19.99. The boys had a limited option, but the girls had five different designs. Sorry I only to picture one. I didn't see these Styles in the Chula Vista Eastlake area and plaza Bonita.

Hope this helps. Keep in mind that the Proctor and Gamble coupons only allow two like coupons a day. Other coupons that don't have this kind of limitation can be used more per the store managers discretion.
Enjoy and happy shopping.
