While the end of July definitely brings the heat, it often signals the beginning of preparation for back to school shopping. For many families this signals excitement, but for most, stress ensues, especially when dealing with a tight budget.
The positive about back to school shopping though is that many stores incorporate school related items in their freshly stocked shelves, and oftentimes that includes great deals as well throughout the whole store. A lot of times you can get some of your other bare necessities at these stores as well, so you can kill many birds with one stone.
One of my all-time favorite places to shop is Kohl’s. Not only do they have school supplies, but they always have great deals on clothes, which could help excite some of those teenagers to go back to school and to find that perfect outfit. There were definitely times when I was decked out in head to toe Kohl’s wear for the first day.
JC Penney also has some great deals. Like Kohl’s, JC Penney has a great variety that can appeal to the whole family. Visit a JC Penney at the mall and make a fun day out of it! JC Penney is really beneficial when looking for dorm items if you have a child going off to college. They always have great deals on bed and bath essentials needed to make any college bound student more comfortable.
Both Kohl’s and JC Penney are great places to shop for school uniforms, too, and since two of my kids need uniforms, I’m always on the hunt for great deals on them.
While at the mall, be sure to also check out the Nike store to save big on sports clothes. Buy some new shoes to have your child looking styling in gym class.
With great deals like these, going back to school really isn’t so bad. Get to shopping and saving!
