Back to School Shopping at Meijer

Yum
Although my son is a few years away from 'back to school' time, I still love shopping down the school supplies aisles and reminiscing about the very exciting 'back to school shopping day' I use to look forward to every year.

It would seem ideal to be able to get all school supplies in one place, as well as groceries for school lunches, and clothes. I was at Meijer last weekend and they are in full on back to school mode. They are truly a one stop shop for everything on your list. I found so many fun supplies...they've come a long way since I was a kid!  Here are the highlights of what I found:

Bins and bins of crayons, pens, highlighters and glue with super low prices.
Sharpie display! Just about every color of Sharpie you could imagine. These are not just for school kids, every household needs a Sharpie.  
So...I bought these :) I love fun colored pens for taking notes at work and for writing in my planner.
I bought these for my niece, but I may have tried them out for myself, first. You know, just to make sure they worked ;) I'm hoping they make homework a bit more fun for her!
Scented markers, fun pencil holders, colorful erasers...I bought one of everything from this display alone!
Not only do they have regular clothes, but they carry school uniforms too. 
There are several deals and sales going on right now at Meijer, including:

  • Buy Two Get One Papermate InkJoy Gel pens
  • Buy One Get One 50% Play-Doh
  • $0.17 2 pocket folders
  • $5 off backpacks
  • 20% off food storage and lunch accessories...and more!
On top of the weekly deals, always check the mPerks app to stay up to date on the best savings. Here is an example of the current school supply coupons available via mPerks:

I always check the app before each shopping trip, to make sure I am clipping coupons to help save on my trip. And sometimes I clip coupons as I walk through the store. You can clip them in line for checkout and still save money! 

Have you started your back to school shopping yet? If so, what was your favorite purchase so far?

  1. Meijer is one of my favorite places to shop. I can always find a deal there. Even though my kids are grown I shop the back to school sales for essentials I need like socks and shoes.

  2. I miss back to school shopping at Meijer and other similar stores! All of our supplies had to come from Amazon and Wal-Mart online this year. The deals and options just weren't the same.
