Back-to-School Shopping? Yes, it's Time.

“Ohhhhhhh
Back To School
Back To School
To Prove To Dad That I’m Not A Fool
I’ve Got My Lunch Packed Up
My Boots Tied Tight
I Hope I Don’t Get In A Fight
Ohhhh
Back To School
Back To School
Back To School” – Adam Sandler in Billy Madison

Everybody join in. It’s that time of year again… School is about to be in session. Before you start to panic and come to the realization that you’ll be losing your little, or big ones, again to the start of the school year, let me share some amazing sale finds to make the process a little easier.

Back-to-School shopping can be stressful, especially when you get served with a laundry list of items that your child needs for class. But fear not, you can find all of these sales on Find&Save.

The Basics: Pencils, pens, notebooks, folders, binders and more are always high on the priority list. Target has Back-to-School essentials starting as low as $1.00 – you can’t beat that!

Make a pit stop at Office Max to pick up select Mead notebooks, composition books and binders – now buy one, get one 50% off.

If you’re really looking to get more bang for your buck, Staples has multiple items, such as folders, glue and pencil cases available for a penny with a minimum purchase of $5.00. Major score!

Backpacks: Most children view this as a statement piece, something that tells people a little bit about their personality, but most importantly it must be comfortable for schlepping all of their books around. Again, Target has a superb selection of over 200 backpacks on sale starting at just $9.00. I did notice some superhero and Hello Kitty themed bags, for all the cartoon lovers out there.

Teenagers can turn to the extensive collections available at Sears. They have brands such as: Jansport, Swiss Gear, Ecko, High Sierra and more. Members can collect extra Sears points with their purchase.

Electronics: Kids in high school and those who are college bound will be in need of a tablet or laptop for class. Staples is offering up major savings on popular laptop brands such as: Dell, HP and Acer. Many of them feature big savings after an “easy rebate” – definitely worth checking out.

If you’re in the market for a tablet, OfficeMax and Walmart offer savings on the top models – iPad, Samsung Galaxy Note, Google Nexus and Kindle Fire. If your child is looking for something strictly for reading, pick up a Kindle Whitepaper, also on sale at OfficeMax.

Dorm Room: Ahhh the challenges of decorating a dorm room. Making your personality shine-through in a space the size of a shoebox. It’s a difficult task, but it can be done. Furniture and decor giant, IKEA is offering dorm-room essentials at a discounted price now through August 25. Bedding, dressers, lamps, artwork and rugs – you name it, IKEA has it, including sheets, specifically for those awkwardly extra long twin beds. Take advantage of in-store savings now and your child will be one stylish step closer towards adulthood.

Clothing: According to the Find&Save Back-to-School Survey, 83% of the moms said their children shop with them and choose their back-to-school items. Keep that in mind when you’re shopping for clothing. I know as a kid I picked out all of my clothes and I loved it! Don’t get me wrong, my mum is the biggest fashionista I know, but I still liked to have a hand in the shopping process.

If your child is required to wear a uniform, Kohl’s and Target have uniform basics starting at just $5.00. For those who have fashion freedom, stop by Macy’s and save 20-50% off select kids and juniors styles. To cure your Back-to-School blues head to Walmart or Kohl’s, both stores have multiple denim brands on sale for girls and boys.

Now off to the stores you go! But before you hit the mall make sure you create a list on Find&Save and take it with you – don’t risk missing a sale!
