Easy Ways to Save on Back to School Shopping
Like so many moms I know, I love saving money when I’m out shopping. But I want it to be easy. I’m not going to spend hours clipping coupons. It’s just not me and I’m not sure how I would do it with my kids running around. So I look for easy ways to save on the things we need for back to school.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to save on back to school shopping!
Shop Your Home
Before you head out to the stores, look through your child’s closet and around the house. See what you have and what you actually need to get. You just might have a decent amount of the school supplies you already need. Especially if you have shopped deals throughout the year.
Check the Ads
Don’t worry about clipping coupons, just keep your eyes on the ads and email offers and take note of where you can get the best deals on what you need. If you’re okay with shopping at multiple stores, break up your back to school shopping list by store to save even more by shopping the best deals.
This might be a tricky one but if you can go out on your own to do the back to school shopping, you just might spend less. Having the kids with you means they will want to help pick out things. Sometimes that backpack with a cute character on it can cost as much as double as a solid colored one.
Coupons Without Clipping
We love to shop at Target so I use my Target Cartwheel App a lot. It’s the way I save without having to ever clip a coupon! And it’s a great addition to our back to school shopping trips!
If you haven’t used it before, you can download the free app then search, browse, or scan items in the store to find money saving offers. Then add them to your Cartwheel barcode and at the checkout scan your barcoade. Plus, you can use the discounts as many times as you like until they expire!
We’ve been using the offers to pick up school supplies for Weston and to stock up on some supplies we need around the house to be ready for fall.
From now through August 15th, you can save on items you use to make the back to school transition a bit easier including:
- 5% off Desitin
- 5% off Johnsons Baby
- 5% off Aveeno Baby
- 10% off Neutrogena Cosmetics
- 5% off Neutrogena FSC
- 10% off Listerine Floss
- 5% off Neutrogena Hand & Body Lotion
- 5% off Aveeno Hand & Body Lotion
- 5% off Neutrogena & Aveeno Sun
This week we picked up some of the products we depend on in our house, so I’m feeling more prepared after this back to school shopping trip!
LISTERINE® COOL MINT™ Floss and AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion are two products I depend on daily, so it was great to be able to save a bit on them this week!
LISTERINE® Floss offers comprehensive LISTERINE® Brand benefits bringing the trusted science and technology behind the brand’s mouth rinses to the floss collection. It keeps my mouth fresh when I’m headed to school to meet with Weston’s teacher!
AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion is naturally hydrating lotion that goes on feather-light to replenish and hydrate skin for 24 hours for velvety soft, beautiful, healthy looking skin. It’s part of my morning routine all year long!
