Each week through Labor Day we’ll help you find the best school supply deals. In partnership with more than a dozen other bloggers we’ve created a price comparison chart for 50+ items at 10 national stores. Highlights of this chart include:

  • For reference we’ve listed the lowest price we’ve seen so far this year for each item
  • We’ve also listed the lowest price we saw last year for each item
  • The lowest price for each item this week is highlighted in green

You can view the scrollable school supply price comparison chart below. For a full screen view, click on the button in the upper right-hand corner of the document viewer (it looks like a dark square inside another square).

I am passionate about helping people live within their means so they can get out and stay out of debt. I live in Minneapolis, MN with my husband and two little girls.


  1. I am not able to see the chart. :(

  2. Target has 8G Sandisk Jumpdrives for 5.99 in the checkout aisles.

  3. I have a son starting 3 K (glorified preschool really) and I need to get 2 four packs of play dough. Any good ideas where I can get the best price? Thanks!

    • Hmmm…I haven’t gotten a $10 off $10 purchase coupon from Kohl’s yet this season, but in years past I’d use those to buy Playdoh for my girls. I’d set it aside for Christmas. That doesn’t help you now, but I’ll keep an eye out for any sales. Maybe Toys R Us or Target will run a B1G1 on Playdoh so you can get both for the price of one.

    • Could you make some? The homemade playdoh works better and doesn’t dry out as fast as the store bought playdoh.

  4. Could you add drawing paper to your school supply list? It can be spendy. thx

  5. When it says after coupon, is that an ad coupon or a store-specific coupon that we can get in store? I’m looking specifically at some items from the Target stores this week. Thanks!

  6. Hello,
    I’m wondering which store in general is the cheapest. For instance, if I wanted to just shop 1 store, which one will be the cheapest?

    • Amber what I plan on doing is price matching my stuff at walmart so I don’t have to run to several stores. Just a thought!
