Michelle's Markdowns: Groceries, office supplies for $1 or less

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WSFX) – There's a mix of deals this week – from groceries to office supplies.

The Penny Deals continue at Staples.  You can get dividers and legal pads for 1-cent after you spend $5 in the store.  However, this week if you buy BIC pencils that cost $4.29, you can get a full refund in an easy rebate.  How easy?  As simple as going online and filling out the numbers on your receipt.  No more hassle mail-in rebates.

So, what did we buy?


We bought a pack of Zebra pens on sale for $1.  We go the BIC pencils for $4.29.  Then, we qualified for the penny deals.  So, we bought the maximum number of legal pads and dividers allowed for a penny, (2).  So, overall, we were out of pocket $1.04 + tax for about $14.00 worth of goods.


At Office Depot this week, there's a sale on Crayola Crayons.  A 24-pack costs 50-cents.  We also got pencil sharpeners and folders for 10-cents each.  We could get 3 pencil sharpeners and 10 folders at that special price.  We ended up spending $2.80.

Don't want to spend all day hunting down deals?  Bring the ads from Office Depot and Staples to Walmart.  Walmart will price match the deals (except for the penny deals.)

We also went to Rite Aid and Harris Teeter.


We bought Rite Aid Simplify paper products for $1 each.  When you buy 5, you get $2 back in Wellness+ points.  So, you end up spending $3 for 5 products.  You may also qualify for more discounts depending on your wellness point total.


We bought Silk Soymilk Fruit and Protein drink for 69-cents.  It normally costs $1.69 for 32 oz.  We used $1 coupon from the Smart Source insert from 7/15.

Barilla pasta is on sale for $1.  We paid 45-cents.  We used a 55-cent off of 2 coupon from the Smart Source insert on 6/24.  It doubled.  2.00 - .55 - .55 = .90 / 2 = .45-cents each.
