PSA: If you're looking for school supplies

I know we all like a deal since we're living on a budget, so I wanted to share this one with anyone who has a school aged kiddo or needs some school/office supplies

If you have a ShopKo, get over there!  I wanted to get some school supplies for our supply drive at our church.  I stopped into ShopKo because I'd never been inside, and ohmygod. I never knew.  It's like a bargain paradise. 

I bought:

3 bottles of elmer's glue

4 packs of crayola crayons

1 eraser

2 glue sticks

5 folders

1 notebook

1 pack of lined paper

a 12 pack of pencils

a 12 pack of pens

.... all for $4.90!  Everything was seriously marked down to less than $.50.  I was so proud of myself! :)

    That's awesome! 

    My daughter will be going into 11th grade (hard to believe), so I'll definitely need school supplies.  Unfortunately, we don't have that store around here.

    Yeah, what is ShopKo?  Never heard of it in CA or AZ.

    It's kind of like a Walmart.  Like I said, I'd never been inside either.... I think it might just be in Wisconsin?  I know we never had them in Illinois where I grew up.

    I'm in WI.  ShopKo is based out of Green Bay.  I believe they have stores in the midwest, that's all.  It's like a Target as they have a Pharmacy and clothing and electronics and stuff, but "not as nice..." I like Target so much more.

    The NEW ShopKo stores are nice but the older ones are in need of a remodel.
