Crash course in back-to-school savings

Crash course in back-to-school savings

From school supplies to dorm essentials, preparing for a new school year can be an expensive undertaking. Consider these simple back-to-school shopping tips to help you plan smart and cut costs:

Set a budget and stick to it

Determine how much money you can spend, then evaluate needs versus wants. Review supply lists before heading to the store and note what you already have. Include your kids in the process for a valuable lesson about budgeting.

Get a deal

Check weekly flyers for the best savings and clip any coupons for school supplies. Another idea: follow your favourite stores on social media to keep up with deals or use a free app like RetailMeNot to find store-specific coupons.

Stock up

Many retailers mark down school supplies weeks after back-to-school shopping peaks. Score deals on trendy, must-have items for this year and stock up on basics like glue and paper for upcoming years.

Shop securely

If you’re ordering online, make sure to use secure, reliable websites with “https” and a padlock symbol in the address bar. Pay with your credit card instead of debit card.
