3 Money Saving Back to School Tips
It’s back to school time! We know the kids are excited to see their friends and begin a new adventure! Sometimes, that new adventure can get a little pricey. We have you covered with some easy financial tips to make back to school fun and affordable.
Shopping made easy:
We all remember rushing out to do the back to school shopping, but be sure to do an inventory of what your kids already have. This will save you money when heading back to school. With most schools starting in August, your kid’s summer clothes will definitely get them through the first few weeks of school and you can wait for clearance or big sales to buy any fall/winter clothes they may need. Pick just a few items, like new shoes, to buy for the first day of school.
Lunchtime Money Crunch:
School lunch can create a big expense for families headed back to school. Save money by packing lunch a few days a week. A hot/cold thermos will keep your kid’s lunch nice and warm and take care of the leftover food in your fridge. The best part… they are really affordable!

Does your student need more expensive back to school items such as electronics or graphing calculators? Be sure to take advantage of educational pricing offered by many of the big tech companies including Apple and Microsoft. And of course… be a bargain shopper! Check for special offers before making a big electronics purchase.
