There’s a lot of dough spent as parents send their kids off to school. In the midst of all this shopping craziness there are great deals, coupons and sales on school supplies, furniture & dorm needs and clothing. Even if you are not a student and don’t have children, you can take advantage of this “shopportunity!” Here’s how:
School supplies discounts are great for restocking your home office needs. You may need a new computer, ink, paper, pens, etc. If so, stock up now and save.
If you are in the market to redecorate, shop during the back-to-school season to get deals on furniture, home furnishings and more. When college kids move in, they often start from scratch buying everything they need for their dorm room. Because of this, there are major sales.
If you are an early bird holiday shopper, there’s no reason you can’t start now during the back-to-school shopping period. You may find a journal, picture frame or sweater on sale now that would make a great gift in December.
Regardless of what you are buying, keep in mind that you should shop online for more savings. Remember to use a promo code for immediate savings off your bill (it only takes a minute to find a coupon code) plus earn cash back, a percentage of your transaction deposited into your free account, when you shop through a cash back website.
If you’d rather go to the store to shop, you can use your computer as a resource to do some quick shopping research: Check out online weekly ads to see what’s on sale near you. Stores such as Office Max, Staples, Target, Walmart and drugstores have a variety of school supplies on sale and department stores often have sales announced in their weekly ads.
