Back-To-School with Walmart



We go through lots of school supplies at our house! With two teachers and two students one of us in ALWAYS in need of some type of school supplies! We are always on the lookout for the best deal for our complete back-to-school shopping list! We are busy so we don't have time to run to ten different stores to get the one item on sale. We were recently challenged by Walmart to find a complete list of school supplies for a cheaper price at any other retailer!
First, we decided on the items we needed. We then shopped both places for the following 12 items:
Bic Brite Liner Highlighters - 5 Pack
Bic Mechanical Pencil (7mm)
10 Pack Black & White Composition Book- 100 sheets
Crayola Colored Pencils - 12 Count
Crayola Crayons - 24 Count
Crayola Marker Classic Broad - 10 Count
Crayola Marker Washable Broad - 8 Count
Dixon #2 Pencils - 24 Count
Elmer’s School Glue - 4 Oz
Elmer’s School Glue Stick Twin Pack

Index Card 3x5 Ruled - 100 Count
Spiral Notebook Wide Ruled - 70 Sheet

Our total for these 12 supplies at Wal-mart was only $9.84!!! Less than $10 for 12 back-to-school supplies!! What a deal!! I don't shop the Dollar General Store often but the last time I was in there I noticed that they had a large selection of name brand school supplies so I decided to give them a try! I was sure that my total at the Dollar Store was going to be very similar to my Walmart. I even had a coupon for $5 off my purchase but even if $5 off my total still came to $15.50 ~ so all together Walmart was almost $11 cheaper than the Dollar General Store!!!
You change check out my price comparisons below. EVERY single item was cheaper at Walmart!! The Walmart price is listed first!!

Bic Brite Liner Highlighters - 5 Pack - $1.50 -$2
Bic Mechanical Pencil (7mm) - 10 Pack - $1.50 -$3
Black & White Composition Book- 100 sheets - $0.25 - $1
Crayola Colored Pencils - 12 Count - $1 - $2

Crayola Crayons - 24 Count - $0.25 - $1
