Summer’s almost over and the flurry of back-to-school shopping has begun. How nice that National Bargain Hunting Week coincides with Back to School shopping!
Parents are scurrying to get everything they need to make sure their children are well-dressed and prepared to meet the new school year, all shined up and ready to learn. But where to start? This is where you, grandma, can be a hero without spending a dime. Simply forward this list of online shopping sites that offer school supplies, clothes, and shoes for kids at discounted prices.
Top Bargain Sites for School Supplies
For school supplies, back-to-school time is when the stores go crazy with sales. Start with the supply list from the school, make a comprehensive list for all the kids, shop the store sale ads from the Sunday paper, and try to consolidate and buy as many items per store as possible. Driving all over town uses lots of gas and makes shopping the sales more costly than what you can save. But first, check out these online bargain sites for school supplies:
1. Amazon’s 100 school supplies for under $5. This is an awesome list. Everything is discounted and easy to find. (Prices good till September 10, 2011.)
2. Geddes. Seems like they’ve got it all, and at great prices on school supplies and student incentives.
