Believe it or not, it’s almost back-to-school-time, a magical epoch at which parents are freed from the shackles of their godforsaken heathens and once again, almost fully functional people. Gone are the days of expensive summer sitters and Vacation Bible Schools; in their stead are restrictive periods of warehoused dullardry and uninspired days that blessedly grow ever-shortened.
As a not-yet-parent, I don’t fully understand this glee, but I surmise. I’m already dreading the prohibitive costs of full-time child care and fantasizing about a time when I can ship my daughter off to an industrialized learning complex for little more than the cost of a breaded chicken patty and a carton of hormonally-rotten milk.
Don’t get me wrong, I love her. Even so, daycare is ridiculous. For the price it’ll take to have someone stare at her for eight hours, I could lease a brand-new Jaguar or rent a small, fancy house in a reasonably-decent suburb.
So I’m all about saving money. And what better way to save a few duckets than by buying your child’s back-to-school materials on Craigslist? Let’s see what they’ve got.
Very nice JanSport backpack black and white with tourquoise accent color. Zippers in great condition, no holes or rips. Asking $15
call or text
When I was growing up, JanSport backpacks were an absolute necessity. Seriously, you were some sort of deviant garbage if you didn’t have a JanSport. They had a stranglehold on the book-conveyance market at large. And here we have a fine one, with “no rips.” And some bizarre art-pattern poorly suited if your child is an epileptic. And what looks to be a pee-stain in the rear compartment. COME AND GET IT, KIDS.
Back to School! Thomas the Train Backpack! – $2 (Raymore)
Frugal Momma Boutique! Thomas the Train backpack! EUC! Perfect for prek or kindergarten! $2.00.
*please note that is has my nephews name written on the inside of the backstrap
Search Frugal Momma to see all my listings!
Okay, it’s hard to argue with a $2.00 backpack. Jesus Christ. Is it haunted? The only catch? Your kid needs to be named Donald Shitface like the seller’s nephew… or your kid needs to be the kind of kid who doesn’t get alarmed by wearing Donald Shitface’s haunted backpack. Either way.
ANTIQUE SCHOOL DESK. Beautiful condition. $20 Cash. Thanks for L@@KING.
Are you home-schooling your child? Congrats on raising a terrible, socially inept weirdo who will inevitably get caught beating off in a Macy’s Department Store changing room! In the meantime, here’s a desk they can sit at during “school.” Also: the desk– like that goddamned backpack– is haunted, I promise. I mean, just look at it.
2 Pencil set’s by General – $15 (SKC)
These pencils have never been used. I have more supplies than I know what to do with so I’m thinning some of them. Both kits have several different leads of pencils, eraser and sharpener. Please contact me with your inquiry’s. Thanks for looking
Look, this seller is going to be honest with you: he (or she—but he, I promise) has art supplies falling out of his ass. HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH ALL OF THESE ARTS! His loss is your gain, friend. Go buy his unused pencils. Please. Even if they’ve been in his ass.
3 INCH 3 RING BINDERS = GOOD CONDITION – $2 (KANSAS CITY)

Holy fuck. SO much going on here.
1) I love how there are options—“CAN BE USED IN OFFICES OR AS SCHOOL SUPPLIES.”
2) All caps denotes insanity. This seller is CRAZY FOR SAVINGS AND/OR BINDERS!
3) The “buy 5 get 1” is a shrewd business move. I mean, who needs just ONE Salmon colored binder?? Nobody, that’s who.
4) “READY FOR YOUR NOTEBOOK PAPER.” Welp, I’m sold.
Baby Pebbles 15″ doll, blanket and diaper from the 1960s in excellent condition. Box is in fair to good condition. $60 or best offer. Cash only, no trades.
Please check spam/junk or other folders for my reply, as they seem to have a way of not being in your inbox.
If you see this post, the item is available.
Okay, for some reason this popped up when I was searching “folders.” I don’t get it, necessarily, but I don’t give a shit. It’s a terrifying Pebbles Flintstone doll. Please don’t buy this. Because I’m buying this. Because I’m a kitschy, 55-year-old gay man I guess. Oh well. HAUNTED DOLL.
lots of clothes – $5 (kck)
I have lots of clothing and misc for sale. Don’t really have time for a yard sale. Have a huge suitcase full of clothes and boxes. Women’s clothes sizes small to med. Baby girl clothes. Not really sure on sizes. 0-12 Mo. Some never worn. A few toddler girls clothes. Not much. And some toddler boys clothes. Also have some women’s high heels size 8-9
And a loveseat. Like from hotel. Will sell loveseat for $10 Have odd and ends if your interested. Will be more than happy to set it out for you to take a look if you are sure about buying it. Bring some Walmart bags. Will sell clothes for $5 a bag. As much as you can fit in it. Lots of granite prices as well. All sizes up to 3’x2 1/2′ all colors. Come look. Will sell super cheap. Buy it all and resell or make projects. $3-$10 a piece. Pick a piece and make an offer.
Can’t imagine how this ad came to be, but sometimes we all just murder a family and assume their identity before realizing it’s just too much work, right? I mean, that’s what happened here? Clothing of all sizes (including some small or large child sizes, we’re not sure), some high heels, some furniture, SOME GRANITE? So if you want a murdered family’s shit, go to KCK.
Set of 8 hanger style youth mannequins. Like new condition. These are great for displaying and taking photos of used kids/infant clothes you want to sell online. $20 for the set. Text or call (redacted) to arrange pick up.
bulk bathroom tissue, kleenex, paper towels, etc (kaiser)
I have great deals on cases of paper goods!! here are some examples: case of 96 double roll extra soft t.p. = $39.98 WOW !! thats less than $.50 per roll !! case of 30 rolls of paper towels = $21.59 Try finding that good of a deal anywhere! I also have facial tissue, dinner napkins, beverage napkins, multifold towels, centerpull towels, etc….
“Here are some examples.”
I love it. See, Kleenex is always something that’s on the list of supplies, and it’s something that parents never remember to buy. And because I am the proud husband of an elementary school teacher, I understand the importance of facial tissue. (Anyone under 15 is an absolute germ-riddled Snot Monster, I promise.) That’s why you all need to head to “Kaiser” (?) and buy toilet paper for less than $.50 per roll. I mean, “wow!!”
Well, they’ll be back to school before you know it. Hopefully my shopping tips will make things that much easier. And if not, I don’t care. They’re not my kids. (BTW, in case you didn’t catch it the theme of this one: everything is haunted, apparently. Oops!)
