Thinking ahead: LWR School Kits

child size scissorsOffice Max / Office Depot Penny Deals Starting July 10th     

Every year, the Women of the ELCA (WELCA) at St. Peter encourage us to help them gather school supplies for kits that go to students in many places around the world.  Now, we don’t pack the kits until October,  but the back to school deals are gearing up!  

eraserSome of them started last weekend.  Great weekly deals are the penny deals you can find at Office Max / Office Depot.  These are always absolutely incredible and if you can grab these every single week, you can really stock up on the things kids need.

Keep in mind that the penny deals require a minimum $5 purchase.  So, you can’t walk in and pick up 5 items and pay just $0.05.  There are additional purchases required. However, they always have other amazing deals happening at the same time, so it not difficult to hit that minimum purchase amount.

Here is a heads up as to the deals you can find starting last Sunday, July 10th.  The prices are valid in the store through July 16th. Each week there are different specials, so keep checking the Sunday ads or online to find out what they are!

  • 1-cent Office Depot® Brand #2 Wood Pencils (12-pack)*
  • 1-cent Office Depot® Brand Mini Stapler*
  • 25-cent Crayola® Crayons (24-pack)
  • 25-cent BIC® Brite Liner® Highlighters (5-pack)
  • All products are limited to 3 items per household.

All items shown in this post are needed for the kits. Crayons and pencil sharpeners are most needed this year.
