Are you ready for back to school?
I think it is the one time of year parents and students alike are ready to shop the sales. Yes, we all get the eye rolls and the “do we have too” when it comes to back to school.
But essentially the answer is yes. So why not go back with huge savings.
Start saving money on back to school now!
Have you checked your local dollar store for back to school deals?
They carry art supplies, pencils, pens, markers and I have even seen backpacks in some stores. I stocked up on paper, art supplies and geometry tools for my son and I think in total I spent ten dollars.

As a Mom I think my favorite back to school item is the lined Post It notes, I use them for everything from general notes to grocery lists and to do’s.
Another great source for school supplies besides your big box stores is office supply stores. You can purchase supplies in larger volumes at a lower cost.
Are you clothes shopping for back to school?
To be honest the school supplies are great and so are the new books but clothes. This is the fun part! This is where your children get to express their style. My son loves track pants, t-shirts and hoodies.
My friends daughter is all about the dresses, leggings and makeup and who says mom can’t get some back to school stuff.

What do you do if money is super tight and you can’t afford back to school?
First don’t sweat it, everyone has their down days and times. Contact your child’s school and see if they have a supply program.
Some schools in our area purchase all related items required in bulk and offer them at a huge discount to the students on a payment plan. You can also shop the store sales, the dollar store or your current supply collections for the items your child needs.
When it comes to clothes use the items you have in your closet if you are trying to save money. Or shop the local thrift store for a few basic items if your child has out grown last years clothes. Shop smart and look for deals. Stick to the basics and save.
Have an amazing day,
