Are you looking to save some money on back to school shopping this year? The good news is there are ways you can save big when it comes to picking up all those items you need.
- Sales – When it comes to laptops, paper, folders, pens and all the other important back to school items, shopping the sales is the best way to save money. Look at the big box stores ads online and work out what the best sales are. Many stores like Walmart will also price match if you bring the ad in with you.
- Swap or Purchase Second Hand – Ask around or advertise for a textbook swap and anything else you might be able to swap with other students. You will find that in dorms and apartments that there are students of all levels around. Organize to swap something or purchase the textbooks from them cheaply.
- Online – If you can, buy the textbook online and download it. Downloads are often cheaper than hard copies. Just make sure you have a reliable place to store the download such as a Kindle or laptop. Check Chegg.com or Amazon for textbooks and other back to school items and price match.
