Back to School Shopping, Helpful Hints..

by Shannon on August 5, 2009

Do you have a Walmart? Did you know if you bring in your ad, they will price match! So if you do not want to drive all over town, take all your ads to Walmart, and have them match the lower prices, however, they do not match ads with BOGO free, rebates, or other gimicks. But for the most part, this is a great way to get those deals, without going all over town.

Also, you may not know this but you can find some great deals at your local Walgreens or CVS drug stores, and after school starts, they will be marking all their back to school promo items down up to 75% then as well.

Another hint, do you have tons of jeans, that are in good use that no longer fit your child? Find a moms group, neighbors or friends and do a clothes swap. You could save tons of money this way, oh because you will not be spending any money!

Another great thing is shopping out of season, did you know stores are marking down up to 80% off summer clothing. In Oklahoma, it is still 80 degrees in October, so check those clearance racks, or stock up for next spring.

T.J. Maxx or Ross, discount clothing stores, you can get great hand bags, backpacks, jewelery, clothing and more, so it may be worth popping in one of those retailers as you search for back to school clothing.

Do you have a child that has to bring snacks to school once a month? Look for coupon deals, like the Kelloggs Fuel for School rebates, or other deals at the grocery store for snacks, breakfast, or lunch ideas. I have stocked up on all kinds of snacking items here lately, so I will be ready for those lunches and snacks after school.

I hope you found some of this information helpful.

I do not even have a girl pet! LOL.. have a great day!
