– Hey everybody!
00:20
I’m Melea from The Melea Show.
00:21
These are my kids, Devin and Rockwell.
00:24
We are going back to school shopping today at Target.
00:26
We’re gonna show you all the best deals,
00:28
how to know if you’re getting a deal at Target
00:30
on all those school supplies.
00:31
You guys don’t spend more money than you need to.
00:34
So, let’s get started.
00:36
(upbeat music)
00:43
Alright, first things first, we have to start
00:45
at the Target dollar spot.
00:46
Right now, they have a ton of different flash card sets.
00:49
You guys might have seen these.
00:50
They have sight words.
00:51
They have addition, they have subtraction,
00:53
they have the alphabet.
00:54
So, they have a whole range of different things
00:56
you can pick from.
00:57
Plus, we also found these digital bookmarks.
01:00
I actually saw these at Barnes and Noble for way more
01:02
and these are only five bucks.
01:05
Target has a ton of Trans by Jansport backpacks
01:07
and they are the cutest backpacks in the world.
01:10
So if you have a teen, they probably are gonna want
01:12
one of these backpacks.
01:13
I would say under $30 is your buy price,
01:15
but Target will also come out with coupons,
01:18
so be watching the app, be watching the ad
01:20
to see if there’s extra discounts that you guys can use
01:22
to get them for even cheaper.
01:25
When it comes to younger kids backpacks,
01:26
character backpacks, 10 to 15 dollars is typically
01:29
your price point.
01:30
However, Wal-Mart guys.
01:32
I know, totally different store,
01:34
has had these for as low as five bucks.
01:36
So make sure you watch the deals at Wal-Mart too.
01:40
So, there are a lot of school supply essentials.
01:42
We’re gonna start with markers.
01:44
If you go with the Crayola brand,
01:45
you can get them for 99 cents.
01:46
That is your buy price.
01:47
However, if you are willing to buy an off brand,
01:50
like the Up and Up brand from Target, you can get them
01:52
for as low as 50 cents which gives you more room
01:54
in your back to school budget.
01:56
The same goes with colored pencils.
01:57
99 cents is your price point for a 12 count
02:00
of colored pencils from Crayola
02:02
or you guys can get the Up and Up brand for 50 cents.
02:06
The two-pocket plastic portfolios are 50 cents this year.
02:10
However, if you’re OK getting paper
02:13
and if your teachers are OK with you getting paper,
02:14
I’ve seen those for around 15 cents.
02:17
So that will save you money as well,
02:18
but if you need to get the plastic,
02:19
50 cents is your price.
02:21
Basically everyone in elementary school needs crayons.
02:23
So, the Up and Up brand at Target is 25 cents
02:26
for their pack of crayons.
02:28
However, if you are brand loyal
02:30
and you want the Crayola crayons,
02:31
I personally think they are better,
02:33
those are 50 cents.
02:34
Do not pay more than 50 cents for these crayons
02:36
because lots of stores will have deals on them.
02:38
Alright guys, time for a little deal hunting pop quiz.
02:41
This 24 pack of number two pencils is $1.19
02:44
or you can get a 12 pack for $2.19
02:51
or you can get a 24 count of number two pencils for $4.49.
02:56
Which is the best deal?
02:59
Comment and tell me below because a lot of moms
03:02
end up paying more than they need to.
03:04
Alright, now it’s time to blow your mind with glue sticks.
03:07
A two-pack of glue sticks from Elmer’s is 50 cents.
03:10
So you shouldn’t be paying more than 25 cents
03:12
per glue stick no matter what pack it’s in.
03:15
However, Target’s Up and Up brand for glue sticks
03:19
is 14 cents for a two pack.
03:21
Guys, that’s eight cents each.
03:23
So, I would highly recommend you grab that brand instead
03:25
if you have to buy glue sticks and same goes
03:28
for the washable school glue.
03:29
It’s eight cents you guys, eight cents.
03:32
The same exact glue from Elmer’s was over a dollar.
03:36
Guys, drastic difference and really, is there really
03:39
a big difference between the glues?
03:40
No, so save the money and buy the eight cent glue instead.
03:42
Now I wanna take a quick break and show you the cute
03:45
school supplies that Target has this year.
03:47
We have unicorns, we have mermaids
03:49
with all the school supplies.
03:51
Now, there aren’t really any crazy deals on these things.
03:53
It’s more about how much you wanna pay or what things
03:55
you wanna splurge on.
03:56
However, Target always comes out with a coupon
03:59
or a textable coupon every year.
04:01
So, watch for signs for those in the store.
04:03
It’ll tell you what number to text
04:04
in order to get that deal.
04:05
Usually it’s $10 off a $25 purchase
04:07
or $10 off a $50 purchase.
04:09
I mean, you guys, look at these.
04:11
It’s a popsicle zipper pouch for your pencils.
04:13
So adorable.
04:15
Also, in case you didn’t know, the Yoobi brand at Target
04:18
actually gives back school supplies
04:20
to kids in need, so any time you buy
04:22
one of the Yoobi products that I’m showing you right now,
04:24
those are the really cute products, by the way,
04:26
you’re actually helping other kids,
04:27
less fortunate children get free school products.
04:30
So I like that they give back.
04:31
There are lots of locker decorations as well
04:34
that you guys need to be looking for if you are in
04:36
junior high or high school.
04:37
I can’t find cuter locker accessories or items
04:40
anywhere and I’ve been looking regularly
04:42
for the past nine years.
04:44
They just have the best selection and the cutest stuff
04:46
for the cheapest price.
04:47
So, you always find great things
04:49
like these white boards for under four dollars,
04:52
push pins, I mean, guys, those are adorable.
04:54
Alight, now back to the deals.
04:57
One subject notebooks at Target were 50 cents,
04:59
which is pretty normal across the board.
05:02
However, if you go down a row, a different brand
05:04
is only 25 cents.
05:05
So if you don’t care and you wanna save some money,
05:08
go with the 25 cent notebooks.
05:09
Same goes with the composition notebooks.
05:12
This row of composition notebooks was 77 cents each.
05:15
However, if you go down a row and pay attention,
05:19
you’ll notice that these were 52 cents.
05:23
Again, make sure you’re checking the options
05:24
to save the most money.
05:26
Alright, time for another pop quiz.
05:27
Comment while you’re watching.
05:28
So, we have a 50 count mechanical pencils for 4.99
05:33
or we have a 26 count for 3.99
05:38
or we have a 29 count mechanical pencils for 3.99.
05:43
Which one is the better deal?
05:45
Again, you have to be paying attention ’cause
05:47
the cheapest price isn’t always the best deal.
05:51
Alright guys, that’s our video.
05:52
I hope the tips helped you so you guys know
05:54
what prices to look for when you guys buy
05:55
