Classroom Materials at a Discount
Whether you home school your children or you are just trying to create an educational nook for your kids at home, we’ve got great tips that will save you big on “classroom” necessities. Here are some classroom materials tips you shouldn’t live without.
Know Where to Shop
The key to finding classroom supplies at a discount is knowing where to shop. If you shop at the wrong places, you’ll pay top dollar. Why pay more than you need to for the same materials? We know just where to send you to get the best deals.
Did You Say Dollar Store?
Dollar stores are a gold mine for classroom supplies. It’s quite surprising just what you can find at a dollar store.
Dollar Tree offers a wide variety of school supplies such as die-cut letters and borders and banners for bulletin boards. And as always, everything is just $1.00.
Dollar stores also have complete workbooks for $1, so whether you want workbooks for addition practice or extra printing practice, you’ll find it at a bargain price at the dollar store.
Clearance Bins Are Always Your Friend
Specialty teacher stores tend to have the highest prices on classroom supplies, but we don’t recommend avoiding them completely. Scour the clearance bins for discounted books and supplies. Nearly the same items that you can buy at the dollar store for just $1 will be $5 or more at specialty teacher stores.
Extending The Life
It’s also a good idea to preserve what you do have by laminating important papers or reference materials. Laminating will prolong the life of important reference materials such as maps and tables.
Don’t forget to shop at your favorite mass retailers in the off-season. This is a great way to stock up on classroom supplies that your kids can use at home and in school.
