    Best Deals of the Week

    I’ve compiled best deals available at the drugstores, Target, Ralphs/Kroger, and other stores. I stick to deals that don’t require too many or any obscure coupons, and I try to pick practical items that most people buy at some point.

    Use this list to decide which stores to hit this week, based on what you need. You might even use it to decide you can skip shopping for a week, because you don’t need what’s on sale. Please note this post contains affiliate links that help support this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you for using them! You can read CFO’s full disclosure here.

    I haven’t been feeling well … it’s been *hot* that I haven’t been sleeping well and it’s caught up to me. I am gong to skip this week’s Best Deals roundup, after pointing out this week’s Staples deals:

    Free Paper and Cheap Office Supplies at Staples

    Other stores have ended their back-to-school promotions, but Staples still has some good deals this week, including $0.50 RoseArt crayons, 4-packs of glue sticks for $1, spiral notebooks for $0.25, and more. You can also get copy paper for free after rebate:

    BUY: Hammermill Copy Plus Paper Ream @ $6.99

    1. Cheap Crayola Markers at Walgreens

    Walgreens has a 10-pack of Crayola Markers on sale for $1.99 this week. There is a new Ibotta rebate that will get you a great deal:

    BUY: 1 Crayola Markers 10-pack @ $1.99
    Pay: $1.99
    Submit for: $0.50/1 Crayola Markers Ibotta rebate
    Net Price: $1.49

    Walmart reportedly has Crayola Markers for just $1, so they’d be just $0.49 after Ibotta rebate. And if you still have the $1/1 Crayola Markers printable that was previously available, then you can get them for $0.49 at Walgreens or for free at Walmart.

    Update: There’s a new $1/1 Crayola Markers printable!

    Ends 8/24.

    Be sure to check out all of this week’s hot Back to School deals for free paper, free pens, and more!

    2. Free or Cheap Chobani Yogurt at Target

    Chobani yogurt is on sale at Target this week, and there are coupons and another Ibotta offer that it make it a hot deal:

    BUY: 1 Buy Chobani Champions Yogurt Tubes 8-pack @ $2.50
    USE: $1/1 Chobani Yogurt printable {not valid in CA, LA, MN, NV, NJ, ND, TN and WI}
    Stack with: $1/1 Chobani Yogurt Target printable {not valid in CA, LA, NV, NJ, ND, and TN}
    Pay: $0.50
    Submit for: $0.75/1 Chobani Yogurt Tubes Ibotta rebate
    Net Price: $0.25 moneymaker

    Unfortunately, we can’t use the paper coupons in certain states including California. But since Ibotta knows my location and still shows me the Chobani offer, I’m hoping that offer is still available to me. $2 for a box of yogurt tubes is still a good price!

    Ends 8/24.

    3. Cheap Pasta Sauce at Target

    If your Target store has Market Pantry pasta sauce on price cut at $1, you can get 2 jars for just $0.50 each when you use the $1/2 Market Pantry pasta sauce Target printable.
