Cheap School Supplies?

One of our friends is having a Christmasnparty in which we are asked to bring school supplies for the Salvation Army. Last year, we picked a name from the gift tree and we were nought gifts that they had asked for. Last year, I bought some clothes and a little doll for a girl.

So I went in search of school supplies and found that they weren’t all that economical. Like the notebooks were like $2.00. And though there is nothing wrong with a $2.00 notebook, I feel like I should be able to find them for $1.00. Am I looking for something that doesn’t exist?

So I’m asking you guys. Do you know where I can buy school supplies for relatively cheap? I want the biggest bang for my dollar. An what else is considered school supplies besides paper and pencils? Scissors? Glue? I don’t have a clue!

Thanks in advance!

Are you near a Big Lots? Also, dollar stores might be a good source of cheap, basic stuff.

I have some stuff stockpiled if you want it. Mostly 70-count wide ruled notebooks, leaf paper (college and wide ruled), some Elmer's glue and construction paper. I bought this stuff a couple of years ago when the kids were still in middle school and then the requirements changed for what they needed in the way of supplies. So I have a bunch of leftover stuff. You're welcome to it for the price of shipping if you'd like. Email me, if you're interested! :)
