Anna from Frugal for You emailed in the following about deals she got this week:
I love back-to-school time. Thanks to MoneySavingMom.com, I’ve been able to get awesome deals to stock-up our school supply and also to donate to back-to-school drives.
I wanted to share my haul at Office Max and to remind readers who are teachers and homeschoolers that Office Max doubles the limit for the penny deals, and deals with the in-ad coupon too (just ask beforehand to make sure).
5 Expo Markers, $1 each w/in-ad coupon
6 Schoolio crayons, $0.01 each
6 wood rulers, $0.01 each
6 pencil sharpeners, $0.01 each
Here are 3 more tips I’d like to share:
1. Check your local ad. My area’s penny deals differ from those posted here on MoneySavingMom.com. So, plan accordingly.
2. Whenever possible, get the items that would be free after Max Perks rewards for the $5 purchase minimum.
3. Get the in-ad coupons from Sunday newspaper ads. The store ads usually don’t have those in-ad coupons. And there are no coupon codes that can be entered in the registers.
I’m Anna Thomas and I blog at Frugal For You. In 2009, I googled “frugal mommy blogs” and came across MoneySavingMom.com. I learned better couponing skills that allowed me to be a stay-at-home mom and homeschool our kiddos. I am still in awe of this gift that a frugal lifestyle gave our family!
