5 Tips to Help Save Money on Back to School Shopping

Buy it While on Sale – I know this is a given, but let me explain. Even if you don’t have that famous school list, if you think they will need it and it’s on sale, grab it. Later if it’s not needed or the wrong color or size, you can exchange or return the item.
Save Those Receipts – Children grown and lists change. Always save your receipts until school starts and items have been used. When I buy anything for my grandchildren, I always take a picture of the receipt. I then add it to my Evernote account. This way it’s available and if needed, it can be printed. I do this for all important receipts.
