Back-to-School bargain shopping tips

I know it's too early to talk about back-to-school, but here in Chicaville, school will be back in before you know it. Here are some tips for you parents, high school students, college students, hell, any student, to get those school supplies and wardrobe,without breaking the bank.

  1. Start buying school supplies right now. If you wait until "back to school" season kick in, chances are you'll be one of the many fighting over school supplies-and you still might not get everything you need. Places like Dollar Tree or any dollar store franchise always have supplies in stock-at least around here in Chicaville. Check them out.
  2. Shop at off-price stores like Ross and TJ Maxx. I remember when I was in high school, I would buy a year's worth of clothes for under $500. My friends would only come home with like two outfits and two pairs of shoes, and their $500 was gone. What a waste of money. Also, scour the clearance racks at your favorite stores. There are usually spring/summer pieces on sale by now that can last you until fall/winter.
  3. College students: Want to save money on those textbooks? Check out sites like Half.com and Amazon for low prices on new or used books.
  4. Looking for affordable school uniforms? Check out School Uniform Warehouse for polos, shorts, skirts, pants, button downs, etc. in sizes ranging from childrens' size 4 to men's/women's sizes.

Good luck with your back to school shopping, I know it could be a pain in the you-know-what. Keep it cheap!
