It's that time again- back to school shopping! Nowadays, a lot of people don't have a lot of funds to work with, so here are some tips that will help you save money on your kids' and teens' back to school wardrobe:
- 1.Shop the clearance racks (this is a no-brainer). During these summer months, spring/summer clothes go on clearance to make room for the fall apparel. Great deals to be found!
- Shop off-price. If your kids are into designer labels, don't fret. Score some inexpensive pieces at stores such as Marshalls (The Cube is a department full of designer labels geared toward teens/ young adults), TJ Maxx, Loehmanns, and Stein Mart.
- Hold a swap party. Don't throw your kiddies clothes out yet. Invite fellow moms over for drinks and appetizers. Throw all your unwantables into a big pile and swap away. Teens, take note also.
- Thrift. Plato's Closet is a great place for teens/young adults to score some cute, gently worn clothes on the cheap. And, if you have some stuff that you want to get rid of, you can sell them to Plato's for cash or store credit. Also, check your local Goodwill or Salvation Army for their weekly sales.
- Use coupons (another no-brainer). Google your favorite stores for printable coupons and codes. Check here also. You know ya' girl always hook you up as well. Don't leave the house without one!
