Time to stock up on school supplies for the rest of the year! Target’s overstock school supplies are 50% – 70% off. I bought (many) boxes of Elmer’s glue sticks (18 pack) for $1.78. I bought new backpacks for next year $5-$8. I bought 2 kindergarten mats for $3 a piece (These are great to set physical boundaries when doing work or reading on the floor, so the littles are rolling all over the living room floor 🙂 )
