ATLANTA -- This is the best time of year to buy both school supplies and office supplies. Some things are as low as a penny, or even free after rebates!
I set out to find the best deals on a typical kindergarten or first grade supply list from Atlanta Public Schools.
I found the most convenient way to buy supplies is to order them through SchoolPak.com. The company will ship a box of required supplies to your home or school. The first grade list came to $55.34 including shipping.
I set out to see if I could find better deals in the stores. First our summer intern Katie and I went through the weekly sale flyers in search of the lowest possible prices for every item on our list.
