With 80% of teachers reporting they have spent their personal money to buy classroom supplies -- to the tune of $1.6 billion last year -- there are several ways teachers can save on such expenses.

Back-to-school sales and tax-free days also are options for teachers, and as are grants and recycled supplies.
