    I just got my teaching job so I missed all those mega sales for the cheap crayola crayon sale. Does anyone know of any sales going on or where I get get cheaper Crayola crayons? I know I'll never get the .19 cents or .25 whatever it was, but at least not full price.

    RoseArt crayons are not good crayons, the colors don't seem to be dark enough. WalMart has crazy-art brand crayons and I think they work well.

    I think Walmart still has 24 count Crayola crayons for 50 cents each.

    I only buy Crayola. Best deal I could get this year was 50 cents at Target. But I didn't look very hard, I didn't have too many to buy.

    Walmart should still be in the 25-50 cent range for a package of Crayola crayons.

    They're bad..they crumble, are too waxy, the color isn't rich and doesn't transfer to paper well.

    I was going to say check Walmart or maybe Target or even Walgreens.... Check the ads online.

    I bought crayola markers at walgreens a couple weeks ago for a dollar less than target.

    Anything with the word RoseArt on it should be avoided like the plague.
