There are so many different opportunities to get school supplies for pennies on the dollar right now. It's wonderful to be able to stock up for school, but with all the great deals it's good to think beyond just the school year.
Lisa emailed me with a great suggestion:
This year, I'm stocking up early for some charitable holiday giving. So far, I have picked up enough to fill 3 bags and am getting the backpacks cheap or free this week at CVS and Staples. Considering we still have at least a month to go before school starts and the Back-to-School deals just keep coming, those gifts will likely be very generously fulfilled!
I love this idea and hope that others of you who are taking advantage of the Back-to-School deals will also consider how you might be able to pick up a few extras of things to bless someone in need.
FishMama has some great ideas here for other creative uses for school supplies.
Do you have any other suggestions to add? If so, I'd love to hear them!
