Maybe it’s because when I was going back to school I didn’t realize it, but I certainly don’t recall it being such an expensive proposition.
My parents may disagree, but empirical evidence would suggest, or least my empty wallet, things have gotten a bit out of control.
To help you ease the financial burden, here are the Best of Back to School Promotions.
Construction paper, etc.
Unfortunately, with the state of many educational systems nowadays, teachers and parent assistants often buy many of the materials needed to provide our kids a great learning experience. Especially for these stalwarts of academia, I’m happy to share the great back to school promotions that Discount School Supply has to offer. Everything a classroom needs, at a fraction of the cost; now we can all learn something from that.
Strap on a deal
Kids today seem to thrash on backpacks the way we used go through jeans and tennis shoes. Each year brings with it the need for yet another tote, and the folks at Tiger Direct have some great back to school promotions on backpacks. This one won’t wash the car and make you breakfast like some of the newfangled packs, but it’ll serve its purpose throughout the school year. And for only $12.99, that’s going to be a deal that’s hard to beat.
Stay cool for less
With all the new fashions, electronics and even old-school items like pencils and notebooks, it’s easy to overlook gym class. Though, next to recess and lunch this is the most anticipated time of the school day. No need to break the bank on these moisture management shorts, a mere $9.99 should just about do it. Eastbay Shoes also has a great selection of athletic equipment and shoes for the jock in the family; girl or boy.
Student wardrobe stable
Thank goodness some things never change; like a good pair of jeans as part of a back to school promotion. These stretch bootcut jeans will do your daughter proud, and Alloy has them on sale for less than a third of retail. Not a fan of the stretch bootcut? There’s a pretty good chance one of the other 60 pairs they have for ridiculously low prices will suit her just fine.
Every day of the week
Saving nearly 50% on cargo shorts this time of year is a prime example of back to school promotions at their finest. And these Levi shorts are one of many cargo-related gear on sale at Bealls You may want to order a few, or take a look at some of the other great deals Bealls has to offer. Because taking another 15% off orders of only $75 or more, on what are already ridiculously good deals, is what back to school shopping is all about.
And pencils, paper, pens, etc.
While some may enjoy back to school shopping; that would be the “shop ‘til you gladly drop” crowd, this usually involves clothes and assorted fashion-related items. But we can’t overlook the essentials; pencils, paper and the like. But that doesn’t mean they need to be boring, or expensive. These skateboard erasers from Geddes School Supplies are a perfect example of form and function, as the artiste would say. And they’re part of Geddes’ huge back to school promotion, so you’re getting a good deal too.
