Very smart, those Walmart people.

But then, if you are the world’s largest retailer, and you are supporting local schools, smart is just part of everything you do!

You may have seen folks standing outside of Walmart, collecting supplies for local school children. The idea is that you’ll buy your donations at Walmart. And they make it SO easy and affordable.

Many local Walmarts are displaying school supply lists from local schools, and on their website you can search for lists uploaded by local teachers. There is an entire back to school section here. You’ll find sales, links to Boxtops for Education and Campbells Labels for Education, and a Barnes and Noble search engine for textbooks.

This week’s sale of a limited supply of Compaq Presario laptops for $298 undoubtedly brought traffic into the store. And while you were there, whether you needed school supplies or not, you could find Crayola 24 pack Crayons, Elmer’s 4 oz washable glue, Elmer’s 2 pack washable glue sticks for 25 cents each. Assorted packs of Crayola markers and pencils, bic pens are just $1 each. Then there’s the 15 cent spiral notebooks and 2 pocket folders. Add this to a price rollback on Texas Instruments T130Xa scientific calculator for $9, Trapper folders for 50 cents each, and $2 Avery 1 inch binders, and a host of other savings, and you’ve got a quick sale and a very easy donation to a local school. If you are shopping for your own child, Walmart makes it very easy for you to find affordable supplies, and your teacher’s list right there.

Yup, they’ve figured it out. They’ve got the supplies at great prices, and if you forgot your list or are not sure what the teacher wants your child to have, well, they’ve taken care of that too.

Very smart, these Walmart people. Find our incredible Walmart deals here.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
