Back To School Price Comparison Cheat Sheet {FREE Download}


Back To School Supplies Stock Up Price List

The second week of July through the last week of August is the season for back-to-school shopping and it’s during these 4-6 weeks that we see the absolute lowest price on almost every school and office supply imaginable.

That means that it is important to not only stock up for back to school, but also to stockpile these expensive office supply items that you are going to use later in the year.

Think about it this way: you can get Elmer’s Glue for 50¢ right now (at Walmart) or you can spend $2 on it later when you run out. It’s totally up to you.

Watch the replay of my Fox Segment from last year here:

I love Back To School shopping! However, regardless of when you buy Office or School Supplies you need to make sure you’re not paying too much. And since you’ll find the lowest prices on school supplies in July and August every year. During those months, you should buy enough to last the entire school year!

But that got me thinking… where is the absolute VERY BEST DEAL?

For Black Friday I created a Price Comparison Cheat Sheet that compares similar items across multiple stores in order to help you determine where you want to shop most.

So I decided to do that same Price Comparison for School Supplies too!

I took the most popular School Supply items (almost 50 of them) at Target, Walmart, Staples, Office Max and Office Depot and compared them with the Regular Price and then the Stock Up Price we paid in prior years.

I then put a square around the best price and highlighted in yellow the lowest price of the item.

I’m hoping this will make Back To School Shopping even easier for you this year.

Here are a couple things you need to remember about this list:

  • Pricing could vary by area. Staples, Office Depot and Office Max pricing should be fairly consistent nationwide, but Walmart and Target prices may be slightly different depending on your location.
  • The last few weeks of the season Walgreens is my absolute favorite place to stock up on Dry Erase Markers, Sheet Protectors and Tab Dividers. I could not include them in this list because it is only a one week sale whereas the other prices are good for the whole season.
  • Don’t underestimate the Dollar Tree! They have Poster Board at the lowest price you will find anywhere.
