Back-to-school savings start now

I know it feels like summer has just begun, but if you want to save on school supplies, now's the time to start your shopping.

This week's Staples ad has several one-cent deals, including two-pocket folders, eight-packs of pencils and 500-sheets of paper (with rebate).

There are also $1.00 deals, including scissors, glue sticks, staplers, pencil boxes, ballpoint pens, Scotch tape and colored pencils.

Plus, if you spend $30, you can use the in-ad coupon to take $5.00 off your in-store purchase.

It's a good idea to see if you can list now of the school supplies that your children will need in September. Then you can check the weekly sales between now and then to get your best deals.
