Back to School deals on school supplies for the week through August 13, 2011.

ABQ on the Cheap reader Mia emailed and asked if we knew of any places giving away free school supplies. Sadly not, Mia, but I’ve done a hunt around on some of the Back to School sales this week. 

Some deals may vary by location and they are of course while stocks last, but here are some places to save while stocking up on your child’s classroom needs. Check the weekly ads that I’m linking you to for full details. I’m just picking out a few items, and you may be interested in other school supply or office supply items on offer. You can also check for your own nearest location. Offers all run through August 13, 2011, unless otherwise stated.
