As the school year quickly approaches many families are trying to save on back-to-school supplies. Some shoppers are shopping for school supplies at drug stores such as Rite-Aid and Walgreens. Buyers are also setting a limit to only necessities for the school year. An example of this is your basic colored pencil. There is a large selection of these. They range in all types from your basic twelve or twenty-four pack colored pencils to more expensive, more modern pencils, such as twistable pencils, triangular-shaped pencils, and erasable pencils. Now, more people are sticking to your basic colored pencil pack. One shopper from West Hollywood, Karen Dillon, said that she was trying to cut twenty-five to thirty percent off of her usual back to school shopping billSaving money on school supplies isn’t just something adults can do, everybody can! You can reuse cloth book covers from last year or use paper grocery bags (you can use markers and colored pencils to decorate the bag before putting it on your book.) Instead of buying lots of new clothes for school, try on all of the ones that you wore from last year on and only replace what you need. If you need to buy a specific reading book for school you can check in a used bookstore for the book. Used bookstores have a wide variety of books and great prices. Also, if you know anybody who was in the grade that you’re going into, ask them if they have a copy that you could use or purchase. As prices go up it’s very important to save, because all of this will help you in the long run. Saving money on small things not only helps keep families well-supplied in this tough economy, but it also helps for your future. The money that you’re saving now can be put towards your college education.Saving money on school supplies is easy and helpful, so start saving!
