Today's Tidbits... Back to School?

It seems like school just got over, but stores are already having back to school sales. You can save a LOT of money if you plan, shop wisely and take advantage of sales!

I always buy more than I think I will because by Christmas/January I am always hearing. "mom I need a new....(fill in the blank)" So if you find a great deal, buy 2 or 3 if your budget allows.
I have a drawer in my craft stuff that I use to hold all these extras. When the kids need something, they can go "shopping" in the drawer, instead of me going shopping at the store! (and paying twice the $$!)

Three years ago I had a bit of extra cash and I went wild at the back to school sales, therefore last year I didn't do ANY back to school shopping.. This year I have to do some, but not a lot. I will probably take advantage of some of the sales.. like this one this week at Staples:  (July 8-14, 2012)
