Back to School Shopping & Supplies Haul at Target 2018!
– Hey everybody!
I’m Melea from The Melea Show.
These are my kids, Devin and Rockwell.
We are going back to school shopping today at Target.
We’re gonna show you all the best deals,
how to know if you’re getting a deal at Target
on all those school supplies.
You guys don’t spend more money than you need to.
So, let’s get started.
Alright, first things first, we have to start
at the Target dollar spot.
Right now, they have a ton of different flash card sets.
You guys might have seen these.
They have sight words.
They have addition, they have subtraction,
they have the alphabet.
So, they have a whole range of different things
you can pick from.
Plus, we also found these digital bookmarks.
I actually saw these at Barnes and Noble for way more
and these are only five bucks.
Target has a ton of Trans by Jansport backpacks
and they are the cutest backpacks in the world.
So if you have a teen, they probably are gonna want
one of these backpacks.
I would say under $30 is your buy price,
but Target will also come out with coupons,
so be watching the app, be watching the ad
to see if there’s extra discounts that you guys can use
to get them for even cheaper.
When it comes to younger kids backpacks,
character backpacks, 10 to 15 dollars is typically
your price point.
However, Wal-Mart guys.
I know, totally different store,
has had these for as low as five bucks.
So make sure you watch the deals at Wal-Mart too.
So, there are a lot of school supply essentials.
We’re gonna start with markers.
If you go with the Crayola brand,
you can get them for 99 cents.
That is your buy price.
However, if you are willing to buy an off brand,
like the Up and Up brand from Target, you can get them
for as low as 50 cents which gives you more room
in your back to school budget.
The same goes with colored pencils.
99 cents is your price point for a 12 count
of colored pencils from Crayola
or you guys can get the Up and Up brand for 50 cents.
The two-pocket plastic portfolios are 50 cents this year.
However, if you’re OK getting paper
and if your teachers are OK with you getting paper,
I’ve seen those for around 15 cents.
So that will save you money as well,
but if you need to get the plastic,
50 cents is your price.
Basically everyone in elementary school needs crayons.
So, the Up and Up brand at Target is 25 cents
for their pack of crayons.
However, if you are brand loyal
and you want the Crayola crayons,
I personally think they are better,
those are 50 cents.
Do not pay more than 50 cents for these crayons
because lots of stores will have deals on them.
Alright guys, time for a little deal hunting pop quiz.
This 24 pack of number two pencils is $1.19
or you can get a 12 pack for $2.19
or you can get a 24 count of number two pencils for $4.49.
Which is the best deal?
Comment and tell me below because a lot of moms
end up paying more than they need to.
Alright, now it’s time to blow your mind with glue sticks.
A two-pack of glue sticks from Elmer’s is 50 cents.
So you shouldn’t be paying more than 25 cents
per glue stick no matter what pack it’s in.
However, Target’s Up and Up brand for glue sticks
is 14 cents for a two pack.
Guys, that’s eight cents each.
So, I would highly recommend you grab that brand instead
if you have to buy glue sticks and same goes
for the washable school glue.
It’s eight cents you guys, eight cents.
The same exact glue from Elmer’s was over a dollar.
Guys, drastic difference and really, is there really
a big difference between the glues?
No, so save the money and buy the eight cent glue instead.
Now I wanna take a quick break and show you the cute
school supplies that Target has this year.
We have unicorns, we have mermaids
with all the school supplies.
Now, there aren’t really any crazy deals on these things.
It’s more about how much you wanna pay or what things
you wanna splurge on.
However, Target always comes out with a coupon
or a textable coupon every year.
So, watch for signs for those in the store.
It’ll tell you what number to text
in order to get that deal.
Usually it’s $10 off a $25 purchase
or $10 off a $50 purchase.
I mean, you guys, look at these.
It’s a popsicle zipper pouch for your pencils.
Also, in case you didn’t know, the Yoobi brand at Target
actually gives back school supplies
to kids in need, so any time you buy
one of the Yoobi products that I’m showing you right now,
those are the really cute products, by the way,
you’re actually helping other kids,
less fortunate children get free school products.
So I like that they give back.
There are lots of locker decorations as well
that you guys need to be looking for if you are in
junior high or high school.
I can’t find cuter locker accessories or items
anywhere and I’ve been looking regularly
for the past nine years.
They just have the best selection and the cutest stuff
for the cheapest price.
So, you always find great things
like these white boards for under four dollars,
push pins, I mean, guys, those are adorable.
Alight, now back to the deals.
One subject notebooks at Target were 50 cents,
which is pretty normal across the board.
However, if you go down a row, a different brand
is only 25 cents.
So if you don’t care and you wanna save some money,
go with the 25 cent notebooks.
Same goes with the composition notebooks.
This row of composition notebooks was 77 cents each.
However, if you go down a row and pay attention,
you’ll notice that these were 52 cents.
Again, make sure you’re checking the options
to save the most money.
Alright, time for another pop quiz.
Comment while you’re watching.
So, we have a 50 count mechanical pencils for 4.99
or we have a 26 count for 3.99
or we have a 29 count mechanical pencils for 3.99.
Which one is the better deal?
Again, you have to be paying attention ’cause
the cheapest price isn’t always the best deal.
