Tips to Keep Costs Low
- Shop the sales. Over the summer, many of the office supply stores and big box stores will have sales, such as 25 cents for a box of crayons. Stay informed by visiting stores’ websites and viewing circulars in the newspaper each week.
- Visit discount stores, such as The Dollar Tree.
- Shop in bulk. Go in with a neighbor or friend and buy larger quantities of items and split them between your children.
- Many local organizations give out school supplies and backpacks over the summer and at the beginning of the school year. Be on the lookout for back to school events!
