Are back to school sales starting to pop up near you? Walmart near us is in full swing with back to school deals. One nice thing that they do here is put up a kiosk that has the school supplies list for every nearby school. You can grab a list as you walk in the door and then head over to the sale section. Do you use these lists? Do you buy every single item on the list, precisely as described? Some teachers will demand certain brands that are much more expensive. Do you still buy them or buy something comparable that costs less? I do the latter, and it has never been a problem. What other stores near you have good back to school sales?
