The school year may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stock up on supplies for next year. Office Max and Office Depot are having some amazing deals on select Crayola products — and you have the entire summer to check it out.
Through Sept. 8, make your way to your local Office Max/Office Depot for a variety of supplies, like $1 for a box of colored pencils and only 50 cents for a box of crayons.
Also, don’t forget less fortunate children while you’re shopping. If you have a local “Stuff the Bus” event near you or know of an organization collecting school supplies, this is the perfect time to donate.
Take a look at some of the amazing deals, and remember, you have all summer to snatch them up!
