Save Time & Money Back To School Shopping At

It’s that time again! School will soon be back in session, but it doesn’t have to break the bank. When Amber was a small child, I loved back to school shopping. There are always such cute things to choose from at the store. Now, there is the added convenience of back to school shopping online at

Now that Amber is in college, I don’t need to buy her the same things {the cute kinder mats and bookbags still make me go “awwww”}. This year, I focused on things to energize her for the school day. We both love coffee, so we have a coffee bar set up in my home. Though she has moved out for college, I like to keep things in stock that she likes for when she visits. And my girl is like me in that she loves coffee. She is also really a fan of protein bars, so I made sure to stock up on them. I also ordered a couple of boxes of one of our favorite cereals {usually $4.19, on rollback for #3.64, a savings of 55 cents per box}.

I bought 2 of the 20 packs of Scott toilet paper that are regularly $14.63 on rollback for $12.98. I saved $3.30 for the 2 packs. And they each had 4 bonus rolls that I was not aware of when I ordered – so even more savings! I also picked up a HUGE bottle of Pine-Sol that was regularly $6.64 on rollback for $5.88, a savings of 76 cents.

And don’t forget the snacks! The absolute best deal, besides the toilet paper, was the popcorn. I bought 2, 24 packs, for $4.98 each. Since they are regularly $15.86, I saved $10.88 on each box! That is a savings of almost $22!

I also made sure to stock up our coffee bar with creamer. I use regular creamer a lot, but I thought it would be fun to have some flavored varieties for the school year. Plus, Amber really enjoys to try new varieties just like I do. Who wants to have the same cup of coffee everyday, all school year long?

The thing I like best about ordering from is that it was all delivered to my door. I really hate trying to drag a humongous package of toilet paper in the house, don’t you? It’s just so much more convenient and time saving to have it delivered. It saves me gas, too, and offers free 2-day shipping on their products on order $35 and up, so it’s a real win-win.

In total, I spent about $71, and I saved around $27 by shopping the back to school deals at So, essentially, I got the creamers, protein bars and popcorn free with the money that I saved. 😉 And don’t even count the time and gas I saved. 🙂

  1. I do all my back to school shopping at Wal-Mart. They have everything I need, and it’s either always on sale or generally lower than at other stores.

  2. I love the coffee bar idea. That would be a perfect way to get caffeinated when I have to get the littles on the way out the door and no one can beat those Wal-Mart prices.

  3. This post is very nostalgic for me. Both of my daughters are grown and have long since graduated from college, but I remember how excited I’d be making that grocery run to prepared for a weekend with them at home.

  4. We save so much money shopping on and I appreciate the added convenience. I will actually be placing a big back to school order this week.

  5. Walmart has some fabulous stuff! I always get lots of snacks from there. I love to save money!

  6. I don’t really shop at walmart. It’s a huge inconvenience for me to go to the store but I will check it out online. Love the coffee bar idea.

  7. I had no idea there were so many amazing deals to be had at Walmart! This is perfect as I’m getting closer to my back to school shopping!

  8. Those are some great deals I am going to snag for myself!
    I too miss my kids being younger for back to school shopping – I often find myself peeking at those isles.
    I will say though now that my daughter is a young adult (college age) it is fun being able to shop for things like this that we both will use.

  17. Shopping at Walmart basically is the best choice in back to school shopping. Seeing as most of the stuff you need would be found there and also at a reasonable prices then you wouldn’t need to go somewhere else. You also save a lot of money so it’s a win-win.
