In Store Sales

Here's another week's round-up of sales on back to school items. The best deals can be achieved by watching the sales and only buying what's advertised at a great price from each store.

Of course this makes no sense if you have to drive to five different stores just for those few items. Try to plan these shopping trips when you need to go to those stores for other things as well or when you will be in the neighborhood. That way all of your savings are not simply eaten away by gas usage.

I put stars next to the deals that are truly great and really hard to pass up. These sales run from 7/29/07 - 8/4/07.
