Stock Up On Stationery At Back-To-School Sales

With Christmas out of the way, the next major sales push by large retailers centres around back-to-school deals. Even if you don’t have school-age kids, this is a good time to stock up on your workplace stationery needs.

One product category that’s easy to acquire dirt-cheap during these sales is exercise books. Big W, for instance, has a 5-pack of 64-page exercise books for 10 cents, which is just insanely cheap. Conversely, those can be hard to find outside of a specialist stationery store outside this time: I remember trying to hunt one of these down last year (for use when I got stuck on a train all day, and paying a couple of dollars for just a single book.

Another ludicrous 10 cent deal? A pencil case complete with two pens, a pencil, a ruler, sharpener and highlighter from Target.

There are also lots of sale offers on laptops and netbooks. These are worth checking, but do some comparison shopping using a site like staticICE to make sure you’re getting a reasonable deal.

Here are the major back-to-school catalogues
