Saving Money On Back To School Shopping

It is time to send the kids off for another year of school. As you prepare to purchase clothes and supplies I have a few back to school shopping tips to share with you.

Tips From the Experts Vice President Howard Schaffer offered some tips for saving money on back-to-school shopping.
If you need school uniforms, you'll save a lot by shopping online. Look for coupon codes that will give you extra savings on sales items from stores like JCPenney, Sears and Lands' End.

Buy a quality backpack that will last through the whole year. Cheap backpacks are tempting, but if they aren't made well, you'll end up buying a new one before the school year's over. Spending a little more initially will save you money in the long run.

Do an inventory of the supplies you have at home before you shop. I'm always surprised at how many pens, pencils and folders my kids have lying around the house.

Always go to a coupon and deals site to find the best sales. You'll be surprised at how much you can save using a coupon code.

I also have an article on How to Save Money on Back to School Clothes that you won't want to miss.
Back to School doesn't have to cost a fortune, with planning and smart shopping you can get all of the supplies the kids need and great stylish clothes without going over budget.
