Back to School Shopping!

When I was a kid, I always loved Back to School shopping!  My mom would take us to the store and we would each grab a separate buggy to fill with supplies (because, heaven forbid, any of my stuff got mixed in with my sister's or brother's!).  When we got home, my sister and I would pull out our bags and quickly set about labelling all our pencil crayons and markers well into the late hours of the evening.  I'd pack them into my new backpack and wait anxiously for the school year to begin.

Now that I'm grown up, I still shop for school supplies, and it's still so much fun!  I always get the same question from the cashier when she sees my full buggy: "How many kids do you have going back to school?" 

This year I haven't stocked up on everything, but I did get a great haul at a great price from Walmart.

Here is a recap of my trip:

Binder paper was only 10 cents a pack, so I had to grab 10. 
Total: $1.00

The notebooks were 5 cents each, so naturally, I bought 40. 
Total: $2.00

Pencil crayons were only 94 cents a box!  (Usually they're about $5 per box).  I bought 10.  They also each came with a bonus pencil sharpener.
Total: $9.40
 Each bottle of glue was only $1 (usually $3 each), and the glue sticks were $2 for a pack of 6 (usually $4). 
Total: $7.00

Mr. Sketch markers were $7 for the pack (usually $9) and the packs of sharpies were $4 each (usually $7). 
Total: $15.00

My total bill after tax was only $36.12!  Not too shabby if I do say so myself!  Have you come across any good deals in your back to school shopping?
