Some additional tips in buying Back to School Supplies

Buying school supplies at the end of the summer is an unavoidable and costly task unless you know some tricks to save money. Here are 14 great ideas for how to get everything your children need and save a few bucks doing it.


1. Buy in Bulk: Identify the items that your child would need throughout the year. Buy enough to get you through the rest of the year. Try to find a few families to join in the bulk-shopping and save dollars.

2. Check Prices Online: Visit online stores to find the best deal. If you prefer to shop at the brick and mortar stores, before you go out to shop, an online survey will help you to know the best prices and available deals.

3. Stick to Your List--and Your Budget: Children are natural consumers. They are easy prey to "buy-me, buy-me" pressures. Have an idea of their true need and set limits.

4. Use Discount Coupons: Save coupons in your Sunday papers, check online for discount coupon sites, because there are many stores offer discount coupon options during this time. Many blogs round up the best savings from the Sunday papers and offer tips on combining coupons with sales.

5. Buy Quality: The saying 'you get what you pay for' is true, especially so with school supplies. Don't just grab the cheapest option. Check the quality and choose the products that look like they're going to last a long time. Buy for the future.

6. Start By Getting Organized: Save money and time by creating a game plan of your shopping. The dollar stores could be a cheaper option than super stores.

7. Make Your Own School Supplies: Get crafty, use items you already have at home to make your own school supplies. This will make a unique statement at school.

8. Always Save Your Receipt: If you buy an item and discover that it goes on sale shortly after you've purchased, many stores grant a price adjustment on the simple production of receipt.
