24 count crayons and pocket portfolios for a penny!

Lots of items for buy 2, get the third for a penny: Crayola crayons/markers/colored pencils, Bic pens/mechanical pencils/markers/correction tape, Sharpie markers/highlighters, Expo dry erase markers
TARGET: I have gotten incredibly cheap now that I have a stockpile of things from Walgreens and CVS, so I don’t see any “screaming” deals that I am going to run out for.

The Pop Tarts that I mentioned last week would still be a good deal (pricing may vary, but at my store, they are $1.79. With the $1/2 manufacturer’s coupons and the .50/1 Target printables, they end up being .79/each) If you have multiple manufacturer’s coupons, you could buy 10 and do the Kellogg’s mail in rebate for $10 and make $2.10 buying Pop Tarts.

All of the kid/adult underwear and socks are on sale, so now is a good time to stock up on those if you need them.

There are Back to School t-shirts for $4, polos for $5, and jeans for $7.

They have lots of storage bins and storage pieces on sale ($3.78-14.99)

You can get a $5 Target card when you buy Viva paper towels (priced at $14), Scott toilet paper (priced at $14), a box of Huggies diapers (priced at $18.99), or Cottonelle toilet paper (priced at $13)

Target partyware is 2/$5 and there is a $3/15 coupon on, so if you need paper plates and plastic cups, it’s not a bad deal.

**If you haven’t gotten your Kellogg’s rebate yet, the RR are still printing through 8/30. There are still cereals on sale 4/$10 and Pop Tarts, Rice Krispie treats, etc. on sale 2/$4. You get a $5 RR when you spend $10.

Many stores also have their Walgreens diapers marked down to $5.99 (they are reported to be in a red and white package). Use the $5/2 coupon in the Easy Saver catalog and get diapers for $2.99/each. I haven’t tried these personally, but people on message boards I visit have reported that they like them.
