Back to school season is one of my favorite times to shop. It’s not because I’m sending children off to school. I’m not yet. It’s because the sales are great for things I can use around the house! Here are things to keep in mind before back to school sales come and go.
1. Office Supplies
You can score some great deals on pens, pencils, paper, adhesive tape, and so much more for your office, home office, or just your home.
2. Craft Supplies
Whether you have toddlers or preschoolers at home or you simply enjoy crafts on your own time, this is a good time to stock up on all sorts of craft supplies: colored paper, glue, popsicle sticks, among many other things.
Is it time for a new printer, computer, or calculator? 😉 Well, be sure to check on those back to school deals because there are some fantastic deals on electronics right now. I recently found myself suddenly in the market for a computer after our laptop was damaged while we were on vacation. Thankfully, I got a great deal on a laptop since my crisis happened to take place during back to school sale season! (Gotta look at the bright side, right?). You’ll also find flash drives and memory cards on sale right now. It’s a great time to get that memory card since you filled up the last one with all those pictures while on vacation this summer.
4. Athletic Shoes
Do you see all the shoe sales for children and college students? Some of them are pretty good deals. So, if you are like me and really need to replace your running shoes–or walking around shoes–this is the time to do it. For some reason, all sorts of athletic gear is on sale right now. So, since no one is checking for your student identification, you might as well take advantage of the deals.
5. Home/Office Furniture
I was skimming through all the weekly mailers today and was struck by the range of products for college students: bookcases, desks, organizers, waste baskets, and storage bins. You can use the same organizers for toys and the same “school” storage bins for holiday decorations.
Do you shop back to school sales as a non-student?
