Top 5 Tips For School Shopping On A Budget

It's that time of year again. As August rolls around, parents, children, and teachers start thinking about school again. With school comes supplies and new clothes for the fall!

Here are the five top tips for getting through this school shopping season without breaking the bank.

Once you get your list, look online and compare prices for the items you need based on the available stores. You can compare online and storefront options to see who has the lowest prices on the things you need.

Price Compare

Coupon Apps

Thankfully, there are helpful coupon apps that find online coupon codes for you! The easiest way to use apps such as Honey is to download the extension on your web browser. As you shop, the app will keep you updated on price comparisons.

You can often find online/in-store coupons to reduce the price. If there are no coupons, you can look at the sales to see what they offer before you buy online or go to the stores.

Shop the Sales

Try Your Local Dollar Store

It's a quick stop to see what you can get at a discount before you go into the more moderately priced items. Take a look, and you might be pleasantly surprised!

Big box bulk stores are also a great place to find clothes for school each season because even if you are not buying the bulk items, they often have great discounts and low prices on clothing for the whole family.

Buy In Bulk

In the end, all we want is to save money. Inflation has made it challenging to stay on budget without having to buy extra things for upcoming events such as the beginning of school.
