Can you believe we are already talking about ‘back to school’? I mean – where did the time go?
I’ve already purchased my kids’ backpacks, school bags and supply lists. Next up, I have to worry about getting them clothes, shoes and rain/snow gear.
Horizon Organic wanted me to come up with some money saving tips for back to school. Here are my top 3:
Tip 1: Stock Up
Throughout the year, you will most certainly come across school supply sales. Consider checking the flyers for stores like CVS, Walgreens and Target. When there is a deal you cannot pass up… don’t pass it up! In fact, stock up and stay ahead of the curve while saving money for your entire family.
Tip 2: Frequently check deal sites.
I can’t tell you how many times I found out about a free set of markers from Staples all because I love to read deal websites. Here are some of my favorite ones:
Tip 3: Fan brands on Facebook
Don’t underestimate the power of Facebook! I can’t tell you how many amazing deals I’ve gotten just because I LIKED big named brands on the social networking site. Specific coupons, flash sales, and one day deals are common practice and are NOT to be missed.
