I wanted to do a little something different since school is approaching fairly quickly whether it being elementary, junior high, high school or even college and we all know how stressful it can be to go back to school shopping. I think we can all relate, 20 years ago, back to school shopping was pretty easy in a way. We didn’t have to worry about what brand of backpacks and notebooks we had. We didn’t have to worry about all the different kind of electronics like cell phones, laptops and calculators! Although at the same time we didn’t have too many places to shop for school supplies, we didn’t know where the great deals and we didn’t have as many coupons available I believe. As a kid, my parents would take my sister and I to Target, Kmart, Walgreens, Walmart and the Dollar stores.
Some tips you can use while going through this crazy shopping season:
- You can use coupons from Target along with a Cartwheel deal.
- You could also use a Target coupon with a manufacturer coupon.
- Try using coupons as much as possible especially at drug stores.
- Try as much as you can to start shopping from August, not last minute.
CVS had a sale earlier advertising if you bought $20 worth participating brands, you could get a $5 Classroom Gift card.
According to the Find&Save Back-to-School Shopping Experience survey:
83% of children shop and choose their back-to-school supplies with their parents.
53% use a cell phone while shopping to find good deals/sales.
80% will spend under $400 on back to school shopping.
50% report that the parents start back-to-school shopping in August.
