Back to School Shopping at Dollar General

Disclosure - free sample provided.

We have truly enjoyed our Summer, but it is now time for me to start thinking about shopping for back to school.  My 8 and 10 year old start back at the end of August.  I try to shop early, so I don't have to feel rushed as school approaches.  Dollar General is a great place to shop for your child's back to school needs.  

Dollar General offers a huge selection of school supplies.  They offer backpacks and lunch boxes.  Dollar General has competitive prices that won't leave your wallet completely empty!  They even offer savings through their Fast Way to Save program.  This is a digital coupon program that has over $250 in savings.  These deals are only available through the 15th of August.  You can also take advantage of  the Dollar General special on stationary items.  You can save $5 off any pretax purchase of $20 or more.  They offer office supplies too.  Dollar General even has a great selection of food items that will help make lunches and snacks easy, but also healthy.  They also offer a great selection of items for those of you that have a child going away for college.  You can also check out their great selection of reasonably priced college apparel.

I went into Dollar General with a huge list of items that I needed to purchase for my 8 and 10 year old for back to school.  I was able to mark more than half of what we needed off of our list.  I only spent about $20 too!  We are required to send in items for our child's personal use, but then we also have to provide the school with items that are used by the entire class.  This can end up being pricey, but I saved big by shopping at Dollar General.

I was impressed with the prices on the IMagine line of school supplies that Dollar General offers.  I picked up pencils, glue sticks, and colored pencils from this brand.  The pencils were only 50 cents a package.  The glue sticks were very reasonable and only 25 cents a package, and 3 glue sticks came in a pack.  I also found great a great deal on Crayola Markers.  These were only $1.  Dollar General also had the other items that I needed.  I picked up sticky notes, highlighters, dry erase markers, binders, notebook paper, and composition books.  I truly am pleased with the quality of the items I purchased, but also how little the cost was by shopping with Dollar General.

These are just some of the great items you will find at Dollar General for back to school.  You can visit their website to view their current ad.  Their website will also tell you where to find a Dollar General store near you.
