It’s that time of year again…SCHOOL SUPPLIES ARE ON SALE!
I just saw a 24 pack of crayons on clearance for 8 cents! That makes me giddy!
I feel an impulsive need to stock up on glue sticks, pencils and notebooks!
Really, these things come in handy sometimes.
Last year around this time, I taught a lesson at church about journal writing and personal history.
I found composition books and spiral notebooks on sale for 5 and 10 cents each!!!
So I made these to give out to each child.
I covered the composition books with patterned paper and made a label.
I printed out a title on white cardstock, glued it on the notebook and trimmed the edges.
Easy, and CHEAP!
Customizing notebooks is so fun for kids.
We’ve used scrapbook paper, ribbon and even pictures. Hours of entertainment I tell ya!
Composition books hold up really well. We’ve been toting this around for 4 years!
So keep your eye on the school supply clearance section.
An extra dollar on your Target bill can easily go undetected. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Such a simple idea brings a little bit of "pretty" into the everyday!
Thanks for sharing!
That is fun, but how do you hide Target extras….never goes unnoticed, trust me!
You are truly a woman after my own heart. These are beautiful!
I haven't seen any "real" clearance in my neck of the woods yet (they're stilly doing 15-30% off… I like the 75% off!), but I'm excited for it now!
These are great! My daughters class decorated their journals with family pictures and pics of their favorite items. They turned out very cute!! I ♥ bargains but haven't seen any really good ones yet.

Even though school as started, it is still a good idea to stock up and buy discount school supply . This ensures that your child never runs out of their school supply and you won't have to hurry last minute to get the supplies they need.
