Save on Back to School Shopping

Numerous children throughout South Florida are returning to school this week. As a single parent, child support payments are often what parents rely on to make sure their kids have everything they need for school and their daily lives. When these payments fail to come in or time or don’t arrive at all, that may put a strain on finances, especially for back to school shopping. While any issues involving payments should be addressed to your legal team, there are ways to save money on supplies while things are sorted out.

For starters, parents may find they have plenty of unused supplies right at home. Pencils, notebooks, these are two examples items that can be reused from one year to the next, as most people tend to buy more than they may need for the year. Make an inventory of the child's existing supplies to see what items you may have. You may be surprised to learn how much can be saved with a little recycling.

Keep in mind that you don’t necessarily have to visit a major department store to obtain school supplies. Discount and dollar stores often carry items such as folders and pencils so it may be a wise decision to begin your shopping there. Always remember to shop around when possible as the price differences can be significant.

When it comes to clothes, focus on savings. Thrift stores are an option consider as you’ll find clothes that have been gently used, often by designer names. Thrift shopping can be turned into a fun experience for the kids, allowing them to express their individuality by finding items their classmates won’t likely have.
