I had to do some back to school shopping this weekend as it was tax-free weekend in North Carolina. Here are the best deals I have seen and taken advantage of as I prepare to get our kids ready for school next week. Stock up on the notebook paper at Office Depot as kids ALWAYS need more when it is the regular $1-2 per pack price. Even if you don't school age kids, this is also a great way to donate school items to your local church back to school donation or to your local shelter or other community collection for school supplies.
