Back to School Shopping Tips
August is here, which means back to school shopping is quickly approaching. Here are a few tips that will help you shop smart and save money.
- Make a list- Most schools hand out a list of required school supplies, but for those of you who do not get a supplies list, a good idea would be to check with other parents at your school who have older kids. They could have great advice on what your child needs to succeed in school.
- Get what you need, not what you want- Creating a budget can help to separate your child's wants from needs, plus it is a good way to save a few bucks.
- Last years leftovers- Take a look at previous year's school supplies and determine what can be reused.
