Saving Money Back to School
We are all trying to save money for the upcoming holidays and right now for Back to School. I just wanted to share some of the ways I have for saving money.
Right now we have to buy Back to School supplies. If you buy extra supplies while they are on sale you won’t have to pay full price when the semester changes in January. Don’t forget to check the ads of your local stores like Walgreens, CVS, Target, and Walmart. They all have especially good deals on the supplies all the kids will need like backpacks, pencils, paper, and more. If you order online, or get the pick up service, they sometimes have coupons for 20% off to save even more and you pick it up the same day.
Clothing is pretty easy to buy for younger children but when they get to be teenagers they get picky. Let them pick out a few outfits they like at places like SheIn and Romwe. They have great styles and they love picking out their own clothes. No sense in wasting money on clothes they really don’t love because they will sit in their closet and not get worn. Plus their prices are very reasonable and they always have coupons for money off and free shipping.
Shoes are normally a big expense. If you buy the quality shoes they will last all year and you won’t be coming up with money in a few months for more shoes. Reebox and Adidas may cost more but they are good shoes and good for their growing feet.
Last but not least, don’t forget the accessories. Kids don’t normally take care of things like we do so I don’t spend a lot of money on these. You can find cute belts at Target, earrings at a variety of places, and necklaces at your local stores. At Target get their Redcard by attaching it to your checking account, for no fee, and then you get free shipping and save 5%.
It may take a little work but shopping a variety of ways and places will give you new ways for saving money this year. You can also look at these places for the holidays. The only warning is to watch how long the shipping takes, because your school may go back before you get some of these.
