When those back-to-school sale promotions start, it's almost impossible not to find your thoughts drifting back to the days when you were the one getting started on another year of adventure. If you aren't careful, you'll start sharing your trip down memory lane with your kids and that could either be quite shocking or totally boring for them. When it comes to discussing clothing styles, novelties and nostalgic school supply themes, your kids will most likely think those fashions and themes were ridiculous. You can just smile inside as you remember the good old days. Watch carefully as you shop for trendy clothing and school supplies with your children and you are likely to see a hint of some of the bygone fashions today's trendy wardrobes.
One thing that doesn't change from year to year and generation to generation is the importance of shopping frugally for school supplies, clothing and groceries. Coupons.com can be a great money-saver when you begin preparing lunches for your kids.

It's always good to have people to share ideas with. Sometimes, you'll find helpful advice and ideas from parents who are experiencing some of the same challenging that you and your kids are facing. You can get information on sales and the ever-changing wardrobe trends.
I always use coupons for everything, including school supplies.ReplyDelete
I have so much to buy that I have to use coupons!ReplyDelete
Coupons are the best and I do find new things I have not heard of when I'm looking for coupons. They really help when watching your money and there are coupons for everything out there if you just take the time to look.ReplyDelete
I always stock up on school supplies while there on sale especially if I have a coupon as well. I'm in college and my son is in elementary school so we go through a lot of supplies.ReplyDelete
I'm not much of a shopper but when I do I try to use couponsReplyDelete
It is amazing how much you can save with couponsReplyDelete
I also agree with you about how most parents feel facing the expense each year. We must be thrifty and spend wisely. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
One thing I found about the trendy clothes is not to get it all at once. Maybe 2 weeks later it'll be something else. We had 4 kids and they did not get much at the begging of the year but more as the months went by. Funny how things change and still stay the same.ReplyDelete
I use coupons all the time, but I just didn't find any ones that I could use this year. They were either for products that were still too expensive or not the brands the teacher specified. I tried to save money by chasing sales instead.ReplyDelete
Talking with friends is very helpful as sometimes they've seen coupons or great sales that you haven't. I also try to pass on valuable coupons that we can't use as I don't shop much during the back to school time.ReplyDelete
I use as many coupons as possible for all my groceries, pet products, cleaning supplies and what ever else I may find a coupon for to get a product free or at a bargain price. Whatch for sales to match the coupons with to get even better deals and strtch the dollars even more.ReplyDelete
I try to use coupons when shopping for food and school supplies, but for clothing, consignment sales are a great way to get gently used brand name clothes at really great prices.ReplyDelete
I use as many coupons as I can for everything! So helpful. Hooray for coupons!ReplyDelete
I use coupons alot.hopefully I find good ones next year when we buy school supplies.ReplyDelete
I use coupons all the time, I love the coupon is awesome, good save my money.ReplyDelete
I love the coupon is awesome save my money. I use all time.ReplyDelete
When it comes to getting ready for back to school I try and shop as cheap as possible. Getting 4 kids clothes, shoes, backpacks and school supplies it adds up quick. I have usually shopped end of season clearances for their clothes I find it comes out a lot cheaper.ReplyDelete
So true. I try hard to use coupons for everything I possibly can. And I second Coupon Lizzi's suggestion of consignment sales for clothing - nothing beats it.ReplyDelete
i love using coupons! I have saved so much money doing so! I also use ibotta! which is a money saving pap or my iphone! i have a blog post about it because i love it so much! Saving money is a must in any family!ReplyDelete
I no longer have kids in school, but where I see the coupons for B1G1 I'll use it 1 for me 1 for school supplies collections so all kids can start school with the stuff they need. I just got 2 packages 10 count of Bic stick pens for 50cents I plan on uses 1/2 the package & carry the other with me when shopping where I seem to need a pen and one is not is around. I give the pens to others who are trying to fill out papers and stuff like that - even some of the cashiers. I have always used coupons for Back to School.ReplyDelete
