I ran into Kroger last night to see if they had any Back to School Deals worth mentioning and I ended up hitting the mother lode of markdowns (I’ll share all the details of that in a separate post this afternoon, but you can also watch my video here to see me talk about all of the deals I got).
While I was there, I found some decent Back to School deals and wanted to share them here so you could be on the lookout for them at your Kroger store.
They had 1-subject 70-count Spiral Notebooks for $0.19. Walmart might have them for $0.10 and we might see them for a dime at some other stores during the Back to School sale season this year, but $0.19 is still a great price.
I love to use these to write my daily lists on or for scratching out blog post ideas, mapping out live video outlines, and other brainstorming ideas.
Composition Notebooks were $0.49. These are so great for kids. My kids love to use them as journals and I love to use them for my daily to-do lists, too.
Note: I always have a notebook with me and I use it incessantly as my brain for stuff I need to remember that day. Everything else goes into my Google Calendar System. But for the current 24 hours, it’s all in the notebook. Because pen and paper still rocks! 🙂
Scissors were $0.79 and pencil sharpeners were $0.59.
They had Crayola crayons for $0.49. We’ll see this price at a lot of stores during the Back to School sale season. My target price for Crayola crayons is $0.25 per box. Office Depot/Office Max has Crayola crayons for $0.25 per box this week — though your store may already be out of stock.

I’ve noticed the same thing about Kroger. Over a year ago, a good friend was at Kroger and noticed their Burt’s Bees stuff marked drastically low – $2 for normally priced $8 bottles of lotion, and Tom’s of Maine deodorants for $1.75 (normally $5).
I told her to stock up for me! I paid her back, and we are STILL using up all those products. I haven’t had to buy lotion or deodorant in nearly two years. LOL. It pays to have a frugal buddy. 🙂
I too, went to Fry’s today and bought school supplies. They prices are great and no long lines 🙂
