It's no secret that teachers pay A LOT of money from their own pockets to get the supplies they need to teach our children, and that is so unfair. It doesn't look like the school budget crisis will end anytime soon, so I'm glad many national brands are stepping up to ease of bit of the dent teachers are forced to make on their pocketbook.

Target was offering a teacher discount for back-to-school supplies this year, and now Meijer is too.

Target was offering a 15% discount on many of the supplies teachers need in their classroom, but it was a one week event and teachers had to pre-register to take advantage of the discount.

Meijer is making it simple for teachers to save; just stop into Meijer anytime between now and September 30, show your school ID at the customer service counter, and you get a 10% off coupon.

So simple, right?

Here's the best part though, taking advantage of this discount isn't a one time only thing. You can only use one coupon per transaction, but you can get a new coupon every time you go to the store. Just show your school ID each time, and off you go shopping and saving.

Of course, there are a few restrictions. According to; the 10% coupon is only good on school and home office purchases and cannot be used on electronics, calculators, printer paper, curbside, Shipt or Meijer Home Delivery purchases. It is also only good for up to 50 items.
