    Tip: If you haven't purchased the Back to School Savings Pass ($10) (scroll down to section on Staples), you should consider it IF you plan on spending $67 (break even point) or more this back to school season (expires 9/17/11) at Staples BEFORE rebates.

    This is the store to grab .50 cents pillows, .13 cents pantiliners, free sharpies, and cheap pens this week! I am also loving the $1 lunchables.
    NOTE: Target's coupon website has been experiencing some problems (at least for me and many bloggers out there) the last few days. I would definitely test print a coupon you could care less for BEFORE you print on the ones you need. Unfortunately, I learned this the hard way!
    In Ad:
    -FREE: $1 Sharpie Permanent Markers w/Fine or Ultra Fine Tips (2 ct)- FREE w/ store $1/1 Q
    -FREE: $1 Magic Scotch Tape found in Back to School Section- FREE w/MQ-While this MQ is the correct one since it says $1/1 for Magic Scotch Tape, it's definitely having problems at the cash register and isn't scanning.
    -20 cents: RoseARt 2 ct. glue sticks, 4oz washable school glue, other select school supplies
    -.50 cents Poly portfolios
    -$2 8 ct. Crayola Classics washable markers w/fine or broad tips
    -$10 Sterilite white 3 drawer rolling storage cart for bedroom, closet, craft room, and more, color ones are $11- regular price ~about $14

    Non-Ad (my favorites this week):
    -$1 1-Subject Mead Notebook w/ manufacturer Qs- There are $5 worth of MQ coupons inside of this notebook. It's not on sale, but if you some extra Qs, not a bad idea to buy this cute notebook (assorted varieties)
    -FREE or Inexpensive Shorts (Clearance Aisle): I scored two pairs of shorts (priced: $3.24 each) using TWO $3/1 Women's Shorts Q (expiring 7-16-11 so better use it!). Paid .24 cents + tax! What a deal!
    -.50 cents/1 Target Room Essentials Pillows- Cheapest one according to aisle space is $2.50, but someone cleared the entire shelf for me so I couldn't even grab one of these! Use $2 Target Q to bring the price down to .50 cents each!

    Walgreen's kicked off its 1st week of back to school deals. This is the drugstore to be at this week w/FREE razors, dental floss, toothbrushes, and baby teething gel! There's also some excellent filler items, my favorite EOS shaving cream, cheap grocery finds, and air fresheners! Also, there are some HOT catalinas printing from the register (see below)!
    Note: Since Walgreens run different regional ads (e.g. San Francisco has a different and much smaller ad than its neighboring cities), I will note the differences below where applicable. 
    Still want to take advantage of the outside of your region deals? 1) print the corresponding Q or ad from Walgreen's website OR if you live near a region w/the extended/regular ad, just bring it in. Store might take it from you though so it's best to keep a few copies of the ad in case you need to do a few transactions OR print a few in ad Qs from their website.
