      I noticed in Wal-Mart's flier on Sunday that the did not list Crayola 24 pack of crayons for $.25 — just an off brand. I wondered if the price was going up. Seems like everything else is!

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Camille – If I recall correctly, around here at least, Crayola never goes below $0.20 or $0.25. Other brands like RoseArt might be 5 cents or even the penny item at Staples, but I remember last year never seeing Crayola at a "buy enough for the whole class" price.
