Let's Go Back to School on a Budget

This is a huge week for back to school savings. From Pre-K to College, some of your favorite stores are offering big deals. Staples, Kohl's, Penny's, even Kmart, have great prices from a penny on up. Here are some big deals for mommy's on a dime:

Staples: The office supply store is boasting 1 cents deals (that right, a mere penny) on everything from one-subject notebooks to a 60-pack of paper. Don't miss the $1 pack of four sharpies or the 50 cent pencil pouches.

Kmart: This is a smart shop for backpacks, whether it's traditional, a messenger bag or one with wheels. We found a Kids Charter Backpack with Detachable Lunch Bag for $11.19. In other stores, book bags are starting at $30.

Walmart: Uniform tops for $6? Two packs of khaki shorts for $18? Talk about a rollback! Aside from outfitting your kid with the right uniform wear, shop here for study essentials like desks. We found a cute, organizing, desk called Mainstays Glass-Top Desk, Purple, for only 49 bucks. That's less than the cost of a good pair of sneakers. Plus, you can
print a supply list for elementary through middle-school-grade students.

Savvy Tip: If you're in Jersey or New York, hop over to The Children's Wear Outlet in Clifton, New Jersey or shop online. It has the cutest outfits for rock-bottom prices.
