http://www.tiendeo.us/info/backtoschool/ Be smart parents and save money on back-to-school supplies It might sound very cliché but there’s bad news and there's good news as far as back-to-school season is concerned. The bad news is that prices have increased this year. The good news is it does not mean YOU have to spend more. Indeed, there are ways to get good deals and as smart parents, you have to study them! Before getting to the heart of the matter, here are some important numbers provided by Statisticbrain which show the extent of back-to-school spending: Average spent annually on back-to-school supplies (Per student): $634.78 Average spent on clothing and accessories: $225 Average spent on computer related equipment: $206 Average family budget for back-to-school shoes: $110 Average spent on school supplies: $86 Prices have increased 7.3% for back-to-school supplies this year according to the Huntington National Bank’s annual Backpack Index (source: usatoday). The reasons for such price difference compared to last year are unclear, especially as we know that the inflation rate is only 1.8%. But the situation is what it is and there’s no way other than to deal with it. TIME MATTERS. The fact that school supplies are more expensive does not necessarily mean you will have to pay full price. There are sales and special dates when you can buy the same products for less. The main opportunity to save money is to buy supplies during the sales-tax holidays available in 15 states throughout the country (source: time). During that time, taxes are waived on a wide range of products and sometimes only on school supplies. This holiday takes place from August 1st to 2nd or 3rd in most of the states participating in the event such as Florida, Georgia or Virginia, or later on in the same month in Texas, Maryland and Connecticut. SPACE MATTERS. The place you are shopping for school supplies is obviously paramount for your final bill. One of the tricks would be for you to shop in different places where you get the best prices in each one and for certain products. Of course, it also depends on where you live and the distance between stores and this has to be taken into account too. In order to check prices in various stores at once, online catalogs are very convenient. By searching for ‘back to school’ on Tiendeo.us, you will find a wide array of catalogs and weekly ads from stores. Here are a few examples of the deals found on Tiendeo today: WALMART: Backpack: $3.97 KMART: Shoes: $10 Hoodies & Denim: $10 Tops – Shirts: $10 DOLLAR TREE: 10-pk.
