Back to school round-up!

Here’s the latest “back to school” round-up with the best back to school deals I have seen so far this week!

CVS ~ Today (Tuesday, 7/13) is the last day that you can get these items for free (don’t forget to ask for a rain check if your store doesn’t have any in stock!)  There will be more school supply “freebies” in upcoming weeks: (you can check out the rest of the CVS deals in my CVS weekly deals post)

Caliber 5″ soft-handle scissors – $.99, get a $.99 ECB (limit 1 per household)

PaperMate 1.2 pens (10 ct) – $.99, get a $.99 ECB (limit 1 per household)

Gymboree ~ Save up to 60% off marked down items.  If your Gymbucks have been burning a hole in your pocket, Gymbucks redemption “officially” starts on Thursday (7/15), but typically, they actually start it a day early, so you may want to call your stores and ask if they are starting early and head over there today to put your items on hold!

Office Depot ~ You can get Sketch Makers or a  Swingline LightTouch Reduced Effort stapler for “free” after mail in rebate or a ream of multipurpose paper, sheet protectors, and mechanical pencils for $1 after mail in rebate.  Find coupons, scenarios, and more about this weekly deals in my Office Depot post.
