Back to school time is upon us. As we prepare to start wearing light sweaters on our evening walks, we also have to get our little ones ready to head back to the classroom. With clothes, accessories, supplies and a lot of options, this can be a daunting task. Well, here are a few tips that can help to make the process as easy as 1-2-3.
Make A List and Check It Twice
It’s easy to get carried once you step into stores to buy back to school supplies – especially when there are so many deals to be had. It’s a wise choice to make a list of necessities, and nice to haves, which will help you to focus your excursions and stick to your initial budget. It’s also a great idea to use popular apps and online services like Flipp and Red Flag Deals, which will allow you to find the lowest possible prices on all the necessities on your list. This will allow you to price match and avoid multiple trips to various stores.
Use The Internet – Save Gas!
Online shopping is more prevalent than ever. Many of your favourite stores, including Wal-Mart, Old Navy, Best Buy, and more not only have their full catalogue of products and sales online, but minimum purchases can secure you free – and quick – shipping. In fact, you can receive as quickly as tomorrow if you order earlier in the day. This way, you can spend your last few days of summer enjoying time with your family rather than braving crowds at the mall, which is likely to make your active little one happy.
Back to school shopping doesn’t have to be stressful, expensive or time consuming. It can actually be a breeze. Do you have any great back to school shopping tips? Visit our Facebook Page and share them with us.
