I read that you can get three ringed binders for 79 cents on a KMart receipt if you buy $20. of there KMart supplies of non school, or regular items. Well I can do you better for price. Dollar Tree has 2 for a dollar, plus tax. The binders are 79 cents each that is 3 dollars after tax. Minnesota has no sales tax on clothing state and store wide. Canadians come down to here, but they save a bundle of money on our mall clothes, but for us US citizens that are frugal I tend to stick to the dollar stores, Kmart sales, WalMart,  and JCPenny's. The store sales are worth it to me during this month of back to school in August I saved $500 shopping in these stores. My girls all wear generic brands. Any one of them want a name brand jeans, or shoes I tell them get a babysitting job, because we are not made of money. Rent went up again, so we are looking for a house now to buy with the money we saved this year we can afford a downpayment. Well lets see how you all do savings wise. The challenge I give you is to save at least $200. on  total school supplies. Good luck to you all.
