Instead of sending the student back to school with all the things on the shopping list only buy the essentials, [pencils, binder, notebook] According to the National Retail Federation the average family spends $385 per year!!! That includes clothing, shoes, electronics, and office supplies. Just follow these few simple tips and you’ll find some extra cash in your pocket. 1. Take Inventory: Many people still have left over school supplies left around the house, so if you find that notebook that has a couple of pages used in it, use it again! 2. Hand-me-downs: If you have several kids then you might want to think about hand-me-downs. Let’s say an older child has 3 binders that have Spiderman on it and he doesn’t want to be seen with that this year, give it to a younger student or maybe a friend. 3. Other Stores: Instead of office supplies stores, why not try other stores? Many other stores such as, thrift, dollar, and grocery stores are priced much lower than your average office supplies store. 4. Hunt for Coupons: Track down all the coupons you see. Combining additional coupons will lead to greater savings. 5. A lot of teachers put unnecessary supplies on the list, so when you’re shopping this year make sure you only buy the essentials.[Pencils, Binders, notebook] Then later in the year when you find out you really do need those extra things go to the stores and find it for much cheaper.
