One of the sweet benefits of being a teacher is having summers off. Not so sweet and definitely in the minus column is having to spend your own money on school supplies.

As we inch closer to another school year, El Paso teachers will be happy to know Target is offering your wallets some relief with the return of its "Teacher Prep Event" through July 20.

Like last year, the retailer is giving teachers a 15 percent discount "on select classroom supplies," which includes hand sanitizer, classroom storage and organization, and facial tissue. And new this year, they've added women's and men's apparel and shoes to the deal.

However, you can't just walk in and collect on the savings. You have to do a little prep work yourself.

In order for teachers to get the discount, they need to register and confirm their eligibility online first. After verifying their teaching status, they will receive a coupon via email to use between now and July 20.
