– Hey everybody, I am Melea.
So, today, we are going on a back to school
shopping spree for everything that we need in one stop.
We’re getting backpacks, we’re getting school supplies,
we are getting lunch items for lunchboxes,
we are getting after school snacks,
we’re getting everything in one spot.
This is Devon, and this is Rockwell, my two kids.
We have their school supply lists,
we are gonna get everything, I’m gonna show
you guys the best deals, some of the cute stuff,
some of things you can find.
We are shopping at our Smith’s Marketplace today,
which is owned by Kroger, and Kroger owns
a ton of stores all over the country.
So, if you wanna get the same deals that I’m getting,
or shop some of the same items that we’re buying,
you guys can look at the screen right now.
All these stores, find one in your area,
and you’ll find very similar deals
to what we’re showing you guys today.
So, should we get started?
– Yeah! – Yeah!
– So, we have our school supply lists,
we have what’s required, and then we have
like the wish lists for each teacher.
I try to get as many wish list items
as I possibly can to really help the teacher’s out.
‘Cause I know their budgets are so small.
So, Devon take the top one
for fourth grade, that’s your paper.
– And, take yours for first grade dude.
‘Kay, don’t lose your papers, let’s go shop.
These are some cute lunchbags for 9.99.
I would say, that for lunchbags,
heavy duty ones like these, that’s a great price.
And, same with backpacks I’m gonna show you guys,
never spend more than $20 on a backpack.
They’re pretty cute.
– I really like this one.
– Yeah, that one’s cute.
And, they’re 9.99.
I just told you guys, that backpacks,
I don’t typically like to pay more than $20.
And they have a ton for only 9.99 right now.
Like, look at the fun like robot,
and I think that’s an alligator, yeah?
A lot of the backpacks even have lunchbags on them,
and waterbottles, and pencil cases.
So, you can still get something like this
and it’d be way cheaper than buying everything individually.
There’s an emoji one, we got one last year
that was emoji, for Devon, that was all pink.
Mermaid, unicorn, like lots of cool ones.
Even look, Justice League, with all
of the extra things added on.
The lunchbag, the waterbottle, the pencil case, everything.
And, I believe these are 14.99.
So, that’s a steal.
How many does this one have?
– [Devon] 24.
And, just so you guys know, I talked about this before,
this is your buy price, like don’t pay more than
49 cents, or fifty cents for a 24 count of Crayola.
It’s just not a deal.
So, we’re gonna get those.
Add it in the basket.
Rockwell’s list says he needs two packages of crayons.
Okay, get two packages.
Another item on Rockwell’s list is the EXPO markers,
the fine count, 3.49 for a four pack is a great price.
So, we’re gonna grab those.
– Devon I got these.
– And I’m getting these.
– And, honestly if your school has a preference,
or doesn’t have a preference,
you can actually get the Avery brand.
You’ll get way more markers for the same price.
99 cents or less for an eight count
of watercolor paints is a great price too.
And remember, you can always buy off brand.
So, if you don’t want the Crayola brand
because you’re trying to save money,
the Crazyart brand is 39 cents.
Another thing I notice, is that
they have a ton 10 for 10 sale.
So, so many school supplies are a dollar.
The biggest deal, in my opinion,
are these 10 packs of pens for a dollar.
And, they come in blue, and different colors.
So, this is definitely something you would buy
for your office, maybe if your kids don’t
even need them for back to school, you grab it
because it’s such a great deal.
They also have a 10 pack of number two pencils for 50 cents.
It’s really important to make sure
you’re always looking at the different options
because this two pack is 59 cents,
and this single pack is 59 cents.
And Devon this year, I guess, needs these kinds of erasers.
That actually go on the pencils.
So, we have a 10 count for 89 cents,
or we have a 50 count for a dollar.
Hm, I wonder which one we’re gonna choose.
This one for sure, great deal.
They also have a lot of different scissors
that are pretty cheap, I mean 59 cents.
And a two pack for $1.49.
So, they’re definitely some options here,
great deal options for scissors.
I know those are on both of my kids lists.
The name brand is actually cheaper than the off brand.
So, in this instance, we are gonna grab Elmer’s glue.
Anything less than like 35, 33 cents
per gluestick is a great deal.
Whether you’re getting the Elmer’s brand,
or whether you’re getting an off brand.
Just look to see which one has the best price,
if your school doesn’t care what brand you buy.
If you or your kids have their hearts set
on a Jansport backpack, I know they’re crazy popular,
they do have them here at Smith’s.
Which I didn’t even know they had.
Which is awesome to know.
And, right now, they’re an extra 10% off,
so you’ll save a little bit more.
So, that’s kind of like a good little tip to know about.
So, I just noticed this deal too.
You get a free eight count of granola bars
when you buy one of these lunchbags.
And, these lunchbags are 9.99.
Oh my gosh, back to school shopping is so stressful.
I’m like making sure we’re not forgetting anything
on these lists, and I’m like reading,
I’ve read them like 15 times.
Anyway, we’re getting close though.
So, then we can head over to the back to school clothing,
and all of the food deals too.
Okay, we just found like some super cute stuff here.
So, look at all these composition notebooks.
Like this one, and this one, and that cassette tape one.
And these binders that say, girls run the world, this one.
Like, they even have clips and stuff for the lockers.
And cork tile triangles that you guys
can use to decorate lockers with.
Ooh, these are cute too.
Look at these, oh my gosh.
There’s some more really cute locker accessories,
look at those, disco ball.
This is like a message board, you guys.
Oh my gosh, look at that, you can actually
write messages to like your friends.
Oh yeah Dev, that’s a really good one, look.
Also lit up signs, good vibes only, hello love.
This is adorable though.
Look at this.
It’s marble, you can put like
markers and stuff inside your locker.
Oh, they have such cute stuff here right now.
Also, if you come back to school shopping here
make sure that you check these huge turquoise bins
because there are lots of really great deals in here.
And, kind of everything’s in one spot
so you don’t have to go walking up
and down the aisles either.
Filler paper for 89 cents, that is on our list this time.
20 cents for spiral notebooks,
this price is actually better
than Walmart and Target, you guys.
Oh my gosh, say what?
You guys, peely coupons on school supplies.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen that.
Okay, so you guys can take these
and get a dollar off any of these Avery products.
Look for these on these big blue containers.
And, you guys can use that to save
money on your school supplies.
That is so freaking cool.
That just changed the game.
Oh my gosh.
Okay, so I wish I could show you
like every single possible deal that’s here right now.
But, that’s impossible, it would take
way too long on this video.
So, don’t forget to check your weekly ad
every single week to see what additional deals there are.
And, now we’re gonna head over to the clothing section
so I can show you guys some amazing back to school
clothing deals, some super cute stuff
that you guys might want for you or your kids.
For our back to school shopping spree.
– We got all of our school supplies,
and now we’re gonna go look at the clothes.
– So, we’re over in the kids shoe section,
and it looks like basically every shoe is on sale.
25% off, or has a sale price on it.
Everything from like the light up Sketchers, to even Nike’s.
Converse and Vans are also on sale too,
so it looks like this is the place to come
look for some shoe deals for back to school.
Don’t forget, the extra 50% off clearance
’cause there is ton of it right now.
And, a lot of these are not just flip flops.
Like, they are legit cute shoes.
In all different sizes that you could easily
use for back to school and get a killer deal.
School or the first day of school would not be complete
unless you have cute accessories for girls.
We have cute bows, they’re all 40% off.
Jewelry, necklaces, I mean tons of stuff.
‘Kay, I talked about JanSport just a little bit
at the beginning of the video, but there are
better sale prices over here and even more selection
and styles over in the kids section,
or the kids clothing section.
So, come over here if you’re looking
for more styles for JanSport.
This one is so cool.
Here’s a 6.99 tee, this is gold, can you guys see it?
6.99 you guys.
Also, all of these dresses, which Devon lives in dresses
you guys, they are all 50% off right now.
So, as low as 10 bucks.
These are super cute too, again 6.99.
So, I’m kind of confused because typically
like clearance, or like extra huge discounts,
like 40 or 50% off are on summer items or summer clothing,
like flip flops, and shorts, and tank tops.
But, I’m seeing them on like regular clothes,
long sleeves, short sleeves, leggings.
So, you guys need to come take advantage
of like their extra deals and discounts they have right now
because it’s like on all the back to school items
you would be buying for clothes anyway.
I’m really, really surprised that the discounts
aren’t on the summer stuff.
I mean, there are discounts on the summer stuff,
but it’s on the other stuff too.
Tons of graphic tees, again 6.99.
You guys, these prices are amazing.
No coupon needed or anything, like when you leave the store.
Although always check the add,
because sometimes they do put like a bonus coupon in there
if you spend so much on apparel.
Lot’s of cute graphic tees, your little girl would love.
Okay, this is what I’m talking about,
all this stuff is an extra 50% off,
and it’s long sleeves you guys.
It’s like fall clothing.
I’m so confused, but so happy at the same time.
We also have other items over here
from Carters that are 40% off as well.
Hoodies, tshirts, everything.
Oh, that one’s cute, I like that one a lot for Rockwell.
And, if your little boy is into character tees,
these are all 50% off right now.
So, now we’re gonna show you some of our
favorite items to put in back to school lunches.
So, the kids are gonna pick out their favorites,
we’re gonna share a few items.
Some are gonna be healthy, some are gonna be
not so healthy, but everyone’s version
of healthy is different, let’s be honest.
So, we’ll just share some of our favorites,
and things that are usually great deals
at Smith’s on a regular basis.
So, let’s show ’em our favorites, ‘kay.
– So, if you guys didn’t know,
Pringles actually has small containers
that you actually put in lunches.
So, instead of having to put that in a lunch,
you can put these little tiny cups in the lunches too.
And, they come in different flavors.
Of course, there are tons of variety mixes for chips.
And, there are digital coupons all of the time.
Don’t forget to download the Kroger app
so you guys can get those digital coupons
added and taken off at checkout.
If you guys don’t know how to use that app
I will link you guys to it at the end of this video.
This brand is always a great value brand.
If you wanna add cookies or anything
to your lunches as well.
If I was going back to school,
I would want Oreos in my lunchbag.
Again, another digital coupon to save more money.
Except, I would want Double Stuf, Double Stuf all day guys.
I also really like all of these variety boxes
because my kids like different things.
So, if I can get a variety box like this,
which is only 3.99 for all 12 packs,
awesome price by the way.
Then Rockwell might want Cheez It’s,
Devon might want cookies,
and they can be different every time.
And there’s lots of different types of these.
We like Cheez It’s too.
Also, cheese dip crackers.
And, this entire package is $1.50.
That’s a steal, look how many are in there, five.
That’s great, that’s like 30 cents each.
And, applesauce pouches are my go to.
Simple Truth organic has unsweetened applesauce,
which I appreciate, my kids don’t need extra sugar,
there’s enough sugar in apples.
And, 5.99 for all 12.
Okay, fruit snacks are always like a go to
I feel like in lunch boxes, as well.
Again, another digital coupon offer right now for $1.49.
And, these are on the character fruit snacks,
so that’s good to know.
Rockwell, which one did you want to show me?
– Oh, it’s your favorite Pokemon.
Is that the one you want?
– Uh huh.
– Funny story, when I was in elementary school
I would always see kids with these
and be so jealous that their moms
would put pudding in their lunchboxes.
This is actually a cheaper way to get pudding
if you are gonna put them in lunchboxes
because it’s cheaper to buy them in a huge package
like this versus the smaller packs up here.
All right, so we just got all of my kids school supplies
plus extra supplies for their teachers for 96 bucks.
That’s awesome, for both kids,
everything they needed and extra.
So, I’m excited about that.
Also, I would love to do a video for you guys
where I actually share like some easy
or affordable like back to school lunch ideas.
And, have it all be about lunches.
And, ideas for healthy, cheap lunch ideas.
I don’t know.
Do you guys want to see something like that?
Will you comment below and let me know if you do.
If so, maybe that can be like one of my next videos.
Thank you so much for watching.
Don’t forget to give this video a like.
