You know it’s almost time to go back to school when the sales start, discount codes arrive in email and school uniforms are on store racks. Forbes Living shares some tips on how to save money on back to school needs.
Shop early. Even if the school district has not sent out a list of needed supplies for the year, hit the discount stores early for the widest variety and the best prices. Stock up.
If your state offers a tax-free weekend on school supplies, wait until then to stock up.
Do your kids need some cool new duds to start the school year? Go online and check out some of the fashion resale stores like thredup.com and moxiejean.com. Cool styles can be found for less than the department or boutique stores charge.
The Forbes Living talk show also uses smart phone apps for favorite stores to find special sales, coupons and discount codes for back to school items.
True fashionistas though will find creative ways to re-purpose clothing from previous seasons. Fashion is evolving and will come full circle with some modifications. Take advantage of scarves, hats, leggings and other ways to turn some cast-offs into something very cool. There are a myriad of ways to save money on back to school needs. Use all of them!
