NEW: $1 off Silk Soymilk Half Gallon Printable Coupon

$1.00 off any One (1) Silk Soymilk Half has released a new, $1/1 Silk Soymilk Half Gallon printable coupon. I haven’t seen a value this high in awhile, so I highly recommend you print yours now if this is an item you use!

I spent some time scouring local store ads and couldn’t locate any current sales, but this item is usually priced around $2.99 at Fred Meyer. I’d consider a final price of $1.99 or under to be a good deal for this item.

Best Back to School Prices: Comparison of Store Sales

Find the best back to school supplies prices happening right now - side-by-side store comparison

Wondering what the best prices on school supplies are this week? Wonder no more! Once again, I’ve teamed with bloggers from across the country to provide you with a very handy price round-up tool. This means, at any given week during the next two months, you can come here and know where to shop to get the best deals on the supplies on your kids’ lists!

Updated: for the week of July 27th

Here’s how it works:

  • You have a few options for accessing the comparison list: 1) Head to this Google Doc (7/27), 2) download this week’s Back to School Price Comparison List (7/27), or 3) just use the embedded list down this post.
  • You’ll see an extensive list of school supplies running down the document (scissors, pens, backpacks, calculators, notebooks and much more). You’ll then see a side-by-side comparison of the advertised deals happening in the stores this week.
  • Stores we’re tallying deals for this year include: CVS, Kmart, Office Depot/Office Max, Rite Aid, Shopko, Staples, Target, Toys R’ Us, Walgreens, and Walmart. (Note: I also cover Fred Meyer on my weekly matchups, but as this is a regional store, it’s not included in the comparison list above.)
  • Green highlighting indicates this is the lowest price this week for that item. When dealing with multi-pack items, highlights are the lowest per unit price (even if it means spending more money).
  • You’ll also note that the Doc has a “Lowest price of the 2014 season so far” to give you an idea of the lowest price we’ll likely see all season for that item. If you’re trying to time an item for the absolute best price, this may be a helpful indicator.
  • Some of the items on the list may indicate there is a coupon or rebate involved to obtain that price. For the details, scroll down to the related blog post for that store that week to get the full scoop.

This post will be updated each Monday through the end of August. You may want to “pin” or bookmark it for future handy referencing.

Need more guidance?

Make sure to check out the post I published last week on identifying good stock up prices as well as general tips and tricks for back to school shopping.

Target Back to School Deals 7/27 – 8/2


This year I’m teaming up with bloggers from across the country to provide you with a weekly comparison of the best school supply prices happening at a number of nationally-based chain stores. I am happy to tell you that I’ll be contributing Target deals! Each weekend – you can watch for my Target post and then early in the week, I’ll be sharing the compilation post with all the store deals.

Before I start today’s post, I want to make you aware of several different ways you can save while shopping at Target:

  • Target printable coupons. Make sure to check here for additional store coupons you can use on your purchase. (I found some this week under “Stationery and Holiday.”)
  • Target Cartwheel. Use this new Target coupon program on top of other coupons, sales, and discounts. (Look under “Back to School” or “Back to College.”)
  • Target RedCard. Use the Target credit OR debit card to save an additional 5% on qualifying purchases.
