If your kids haven’t started back to school yet, it probably isn’t too far off. In between figuring out the new school schedules, planning after school activities and making sure everyone has all their books, supplies, lunch, etc – I’m still trying to find deals. All this added planning can be stressful, but that is why I’m glad I have these 5 Free Back to School Apps to keep us all organized and sane!
My favorite new app is Flipp, which is a free app that allows you to see your favorite weekly ads right on your phone (or tablet). You’ll find ads from Kroger, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Dollar General, Big Lots and more. There are over 400 retailers available. The app is very easy to use to view the ads and it allows you to create a shopping list with just a simple tap of the item in the ad. It is perfect to scan through ads as you are waiting in the pick up line at school (or any other time consuming school activity!). This is perfect for those busy back to school days.
