7 Tips for Back to School Sales

1. Take Inventory Before You Shop

Take a moment to see what you need and make a list before you set out to do your shopping.

2. Don’t Shop One Store for Everything

Be sure to shop around to get the best deals on office supplies and back to school items. Don’t limit yourself to Target and Walmart. The office supplies stores have great deals for back to school too. Also, drug stores like Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid have great deals on school supplies too.

3. Don’t Do All Your Shopping at Once

Each week retailers will have rock bottom prices on some items. If you plan to shop each week to pick up those rock-bottom deals you can save the most money.

4. Clip Coupons

During back to school sales, you’re sure to find coupons to match many items. Be sure to check for printable coupons and Sunday paper coupons. Print or clip the coupons for items you know you’ll want to purchase. Keep them in an envelope in your purse so you’ll have them on hand when you go shopping.

5. Shop the Dollar Store

The dollar store has lots of school supplies and more at really good prices. If you don’t want to bother shopping the sales shopping a dollar store is a good option for inexpensive school supplies.

6. Stock Up

Don’t purchase just what you’ll need for the beginning of the school year, really stock up. The best prices of the year are during the back to school sales, so be sure to purchase enough to last all year long until the next big sales season.

7. Use Cash

With so many great deals to be had it’s easy to get carried away and overspend your budget. Make a budget now and use cash when you shop so you can avoid overspending.

  1. My kids brought home a lot of supplies from school at the end of the year, which I’m planning to reuse this coming year.

    I also like to stock up on notebooks when they are 10 cents each…I’ll have to look through my stash before we go shopping for more supplies.
