  • Best Back to School Deals: 7/14 – 7/20/2013

    Each year during Back to School season, I put together a list of the week’s best back to school deals. It’s a great time to stock up on supplies for your family, as well as donation items. This list is based on ads for the Los Angeles area. If you’re not local, you may want to check your ad to see if your offers are the same.


    You can learn about Staples Easy Rebates and Staples Rewards here. If you’re a teacher, you should check out the Staples Teacher Rewards Program.
