Getting your family prepared to head back to school, can be difficult especially after a long, fun-filled summer. Here are a few of our favorite Back to School Tips to help you along the way.
1. Back-to-School Supplies Checklist - Backpack? Check. Pencils? Check. Safety scissors? Not Yet. Use the same checklist each time you head out to grab supplies, to keep track of what you have already purchased and the things you still need to. These are also handy if you have more than one child. Simply print 2, 3, 4 list and add their name to the top.
2. Start Saving Early - As your child moves through their grade levels, it can be increasingly expensive to have the money on-hand to buy last minute sporting gear, for field trip expenses, and additional classroom necessities from particular teachers. Creating a budget for yourself early, during the summer, can ease the worry when having to make last minute purchases along with the usual supplies requested.
3. Buy in Bulk - During the school year, your child will need many pencils, pens, notebook paper, and other supplies that they use often. Why not shop at stores like COSCO and Sam's Club to buy those supplies that your child will run out of pretty much weekly or monthly. Save yourself the trip to the store and the last minute surprises.
4. Thrift Shops - I know, many children these days want the name brand clothing and shoes, but from many stars and even fabulous models, we know that consignment shops are IN. They have styles that not everyone will have, the clothes are at affordable prices, you can mix and match colors and fabrics to create really edgy styles for your child. Some clothing and shoes in thrift shops still have the tags on them.
One (1) lucky winner will receive a $1,000 Visa Gift Card!
