Cindy's Money Savings Tips for August 5. Back to School Savings Tips!


Ready or not it's Back to School time! We talk about this only once a year, but it seems to come around faster and faster so, here are some tips and helpful reminders to help you save money with it comes to  school shopping! 


1) Take an inventory of what clothes still fit you child. Remember, it is probably going to be warm out for a while so depending on the dress code at your school, you may want to wait to buy long pants until it starts getting cooler out. This helps the expenses now and protects you from that surprise growth spurt children tend to have.

2)  Find someone that you can swap, sell or buy clothes.  Look around at church for someone that has a child either a little smaller or larger than yours and see if you can work something out.  Those arrangements can work out great for both parties.
 
3) Take and inventory of the clothes you can use and live by the list.  
 
4) Wait for the September clearance sales for some items.  Book bags and lunch bags are usually put on clearance after the back-to-school rush is over.
 
5) Get the school list and compare ads at various stores.  A lot of stores price match, so take the ads with you when you go. 
 
6) You may want to stock up on sale items like lined paper, copy paper, folders, pencils, etc.  You’ll need more of those throughout the year and they probably won’t be on sale then. 
 
7)If you are a grandparent –take your grandchildren to pick out a new outfit or drop some money in the mail so they can pick out a new school outfit or book bag. 

8) Finally, start now so you can enjoy the last few remaining days of summer.
 
Hope this helps!  Have a GREAT rest of you summer and happy shopping!
