Back-to-school deals are in full swing with prices as low as a penny. Some are even free.
The deals can be found at the office supply stores and big box retailers, of course. But don't forget the drugstores and supermarkets. They are getting in on back-to-school sales as well.
Even if you don't have kids, think about stocking up your home office or buy the ultra cheap deals and donate them to a nearby school or charity. I know they will greatly appreciate it.
But do your homework please! That includes reading the fine print. Some deals, especially some of those enticing free and penny deals, require a minimum purchase or involve a rebate.
