Make sure you stick to your list and try not to impulse buy. Sometimes the teacher will send home a list of the expected items for the school year that you may need to add to your list. A great way to save some money on your back to school list is by starting early. You need to begin to watch the ads to see what the best possible prices are for the items you need. Clip coupons and start buying school supplies now that you see on sale. Also, go through your child’s previous year school supplies and see if there is anything you can re-use.
