Summer has almost come to an end, and that means school is about to begin! Do you have visions of pencils and folders floating in your head, keeping you awake at night? Does the school-supply section give you anxiety when you pass it in the grocery store? Do the outrageous price-tags on backpacks make you feel aggressive?
If so, you have come to the right place. Don’t worry, I have compiled a list of different ways you can score big on school supplies this year so you can have some peace-of-mind during your school shopping.
See What You Already Have
Lots of school supplies can be re-used. Resist the temptation to buy the brand new sparkly pink scissors if your daughter already has a pair from last year. Instead of buying a bunch of new mechanical pencils, just stock up on some led and re-use the ones you already have. Rulers, pencil cases and backpacks can all be re-used if they’re still in good condition.
(Tip: While you may be fine with re-using, your kid may not be so on board. Make a compromise, instead of the new backpack, iron-on new designs or buy a few fun keychains!)
Shop At The Dollar Store
Dollar Stores have a wide variety of school supplies and organizational tools that may be a better price than the typical store. (Though be sure to compare prices, as some sales at regular stores can beat dollar store prices.) As one example, you can stock up on dollar pencil cases that may normally be $5 elsewhere!
Head To A Garage Sale
This time of year there are lots of garage sales each weekend. Stop by a few of them and see if you can grab some gently-used supplies. Lots of times they will even have brand new items!
Coupon, Coupon, Coupon!
There are LOADS of great coupons out there for school supplies. Before heading out for your shopping trip check our coupon section for the best deals on school supplies. That way you’ll head to the store feeling prepared and ready to snag the best prices!
Snag ads from a bunch of stores, and instead of hitting each one for their best sales, choose a store that you know will match prices, and get all of your shopping done there!
