Tips for Back-To-School Shopping

August and September are here and if you have school children that means one thing – Back to School Shopping! With the economy still in shambles many Americans are stressing on how they are going to spend the money for items on their child’s back to school list. Here’s a few ways you can save:
Back to School

Seek Out FREE Promotions

Office supply stores like Staples are offering free products when you spend a minimum dollar amount or when you purchase certain products.

Take Advantage of Store Sales Along With Coupons!

You’ll be able to score writing utensils for just a few pennies along with possible free products such as tape (on sale for $.50 at Target and there’s a coupon to match it, making it FREE!)

Check Out Online Retailers

Many online retailers are wanting your hard earned dollars. Be on the lookout for clearance items such as summer clothing, flip flops and left over winter clothing. Order a size larger t-shirt and layer with a long sleeve shirt for the upcoming fall and winter months. Also check out ThredUp. This is a great way to not only earn a few bucks on the clothing your children have outgrown, but, a great resource for getting clothing NOW!

Back-To-School Haircuts

Is your child in need of a hair cut? School children (K-6th) get a FREE haircut all month long at JC Penney Salons. Call today and make an appointment!

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  2. Undeniably believe that that you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people think about issues that they plainly do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
