17 Money-Saving Back To School Shopping Tips

Without a plan, back-to-school shopping can become an expensive hassle. Here is a checklist that will help keep your family on time, on task, and on budget: 

  • Stick to the teacher's list of supplies 
  • Shop at home first; you may already own most items 
  • Wait until tax-free holidays 
  • Buy plain lunch-boxes and let kids decorate 
  • Put names on everything 
  • Clip coupons from Sunday circulars 
  • Shop discount stores first 
  • Don't forget about grocery store sales 
  • Follow stores' social media accounts for sale alerts 
  • Buy in bulk and split among multiple families
