I KNOW IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE – BUT IT’S TIME TO START THINKING OF BACK – TO -SCHOOL SHOPPING. IN 2014… MORE THAN $74 BILLION DOLLARS WERE SPENT GEARING UP TO HEAD BACK TO CLASS.., ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL RETAIL FEDERATION. SO BEFORE YOU BUY… KIMBERLY HAZEN IS HERE FROM THE WISCONSIN BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU… WITH WAYS TO PINCH SOME PENNIES. AND KIMBERLY… IT’S CRAZY TO THIK THAT FAMILIES WILL SPEND ABOUT $670 DOLLARS JUST TO SEND THEIR KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL… WHAT ARE WAY WE CAN CUT THAT PRICE TAG. ((KIMBERLY ANSWERS)) DO A HOME INVENTORY LIST. YOU MAY ALREADY OWN MANY OF THE ITEMS. MAKE A SHOPPING LIST. EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE EXACT SCHOOL SUPPLY LIST, YOU SHOULD GET AN IDEA OF SCHOOL CLOTHING AND OTHER SCHOOL NEEDS. BEWARE OF IMPULSE BUYING. CREATE A BUDGET. GO TO THE INTERNET AND SIGN UP FOR SALES ALERTS FROM YOUR FAVORITE STORES. WATCH THE ADS FOR COUPONS AND DON’T FORGET PRICE MATCHING POLICIES. NETWORK WITH OTHER PARENTS. SEEK OUT OR HOST A CLOTHING SWAP ONLINE OR IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD; THIS CAN BE A GREAT WAY TO RECYCLE YOUR GENTLY USED ITEMS AND SAVE MONEY ON THE THINGS YOU NEED THIS YEAR. ALSO, RESEARCH THE POTENTIAL SAVINGS OF BUYING SCHOOL SUPPLIES IN BULK AND SPLITTING THE COST WITH OTHER PARENTS IN YOUR AREA. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DISCOUNTS. MANY STORES OFFER STUDENT AND TEACHER DISCOUNTS ON HOT ITEMS LIKE LAPTOPS AND UNIFORMS. RETAILERS WILL BE TRYING TO MAKE ROOM FOR FALL FASHION AND THE NEWEST MODELS, SO THERE ARE INCREDIBLE SAVINGS TO BE HAD ON OLDER ITEMS.
