Save Money This Back-to-School Season With These Tips

Summer’s almost over, schools are getting back in session, and it’s time to save some money this fall! The back-to-school season can be tricky when it comes to finances — with expenses like new clothes, laptops, and school supplies, it can be hard to keep up with all the spending! 

But never fear — we at P.T.R.C., Inc. have put together a list of money-saving tips to help you ease back into the school year without breaking the bank. Check out our list below!

Shop Second-hand

One way to save money on back-to-school shopping is to shop second-hand. You can find great deals on clothing, shoes, and even school supplies if you know where to look. Check out your local thrift store or consignment shop, or even try online second-hand stores. With a little bit of effort, you can find everything you need for a fraction of the cost.

Look For Coupons

To save money on back-to-school shopping, start by looking for coupons. You can find coupons in a variety of places, including online, in newspapers, and store circulars. Keep your eyes peeled for sales, too. You can often find great deals on school supplies if you shop at the right time.

Shop During Back-to-School Sales Periods

Speaking of sales, typically late July through early September is when you can find some of the best back-to-school deals in stores. During this time, stores offer significant discounts on school supplies, clothing, and other items. Planning ahead and taking advantage of these sales can save you a lot of money.

Invest in School Supplies That Will Last Longer

Another way to save money on back-to-school supplies is to invest in items that will last longer. This could mean opting for a sturdier backpack or choosing pens and pencils that have a higher quality. Plus, they can be used again next year! Not only will this save you money in the long run, but it will also reduce the amount of waste you produce.
