As an experienced shopper I know that as soon as July 4th is over, that's when all the sales start happening. The trick is that you have to start early and only buy the rock bottom loss leaders that get you in the door in the hopes you will buy everything on your list and buy the other stuff at full price.
Start checking your sales ads this Sunday ... here are some hot items that I found this week Costco had back packs $18.99, great quality and a fair / low price. They also had ones that are $39.99 but they were more for the college student and too heavy and bulky for a locker. They had great color selection to choose from but I wouldn't wait too long.
Aldis had some great items and especially for the college students. They also had some great closet organizing selection for just $4.99 each. Check out their ad this week online at www.aldi.us.
I was at Dollar Tree and they had a ton of stuff a pack of pens for 8 for $1.00, Crayons Playskool brand 36 pack for $1.00. Dollar Tree had tons of cute plastic bins in all sizes for organizing and large ones too.
If you don't have any kids at home maybe think that this is a great time to get organized for your office and home. It’s a great time to pick up those supplies for Financial binder and get your bills in order.
Let’s be real ladies. It’s super easy to get caught up in the whole back to school frenzy especially when you take the kids shopping with you. Try to get the majority of the stuff on your list without the kids and shop for the rock bottom prices at Office Max and Staples sales like 10 cents for glue. Take the kids when they want to pick out there favorite character folder and let them pick that out. This strategy alone can save big bucks at the end of the day.
