As a continuation of Tips on How to Budget for Back-to-School Shopping (Part 1), the following are some additional helpful tips on how parents can save money when doing back-to-school shopping for their child or children this year.

  • Scope out the best deals: Many retailers have back-to-school sales on various items you may need to purchase for your child(ren) this year. Before you start shopping, do some research to see which retailer is selling the school supplies, clothing, sporting goods, etc. that you plan on purchasing at the best price. As part of this research, see if you are able to find any coupons or other offers that may further slash the prices of the items you already need to buy. This kind of preliminary work can save you a lot of money.
  • Consider what you may be able to buy used: Some of the most expensive items you plan on buying for your child(ren) this school year – like clothes, sporting goods and/or text books – may be available for significantly cheaper from second-hand stores or retailers that sell slightly used items. Before purchasing everything brand new, check out retailers that sell used goods and see if you are able to find anything for your child(ren) there (as the costs as these retailers can be a fraction of the price of what you would pay for brand new items).
