Back to School- $50 Backpack Stuff Challenge

How many school supplies can you get for $50 or less??? Oh and that includes a backpack??? LOTS!!!

Walmart sent me on a challenge… To get two backpacks, and see how many supplies I could get for $50 or less… Well… I got all of the supplies my girls needed for school, and two very cool backpacks!


The first one is this super cute Cinderella backpack. It was only $6.88!

The rest of the supplies were not expensive either.

  • 5 Single Subject notebooks 97¢ ea
  • 3 two pocket portfolios 15¢ ea
  • 2 packs of wide rule filler paper 82¢ ea
  • 1 pack of page protectors $3.67
  • 1 pack of copy paper $2.00
  • 3 packs of pencils 10ct 47¢ ea
  • 2 packs of Crayola Crayons 24ct 50¢ ea
  • Child Scissors $1.47
  • School box 57¢
  • Puffs Tissues $1.00
  • (Not pictured 1/5″ Avery Binder $3.78)

Everything came up to $33.03 including tax! What a great deal!

This second backpack group only came to $33.54. The Hello Kitty backpack was $12.88, and the school supplies are the same as the previous list. Everything totalled $37.15

  1. I didn’t know their copy paper was so cheap! Some of the other prices actually seem high. The avery binders I have seen for around $2 lately, and the single subject notebooks, why not buy the 17 cent ones they run with the back to school sales? Kids can actually decorate them with stickers and make them their own if they don’t like the plain design on the cover 🙂

  2. @Kimmy- Yes, I could have purchased the 17 cent single subject notebooks, and I did for another project, but for my girls’ school supplies, I chose these because they were 90 sheets vs 70, a more durable plastic cover rather than the thin cardboard ones, plus, my girls wanted pink and purple, and they didn’t have that in the 17 cent ones 😉

    Thanks for your comments !!!
