FRSA Flash 10 August Back to School Shopping it is the time of year for sharpening pencils, navigating crowded aisles full of children and parents anxious to check off the items on their page-long back to school list. Every year it seems that those lists are getting longer and those items more expensive. So what can we do to reduce that big hole in our pocket books that back to school shopping can create?. According to an article at parenting.com, there are some things you can do to save money. 1. Let children raid the home office supplies. Kids can decorate pencils with stickers and make photo collages for plain white binders. 2. Check out the local circulars for best deals on basic supplies. 3. Stick to the list. Have your child pay for any upgrades or extras. 4. For school clothes, it isn’t necessary to buy the sweaters and longer sleeves right at the beginning of the school year. Take advantage of late-summer sales. Polos and tees can be worn well into the season.
