money-saving tips

Back-to-school shopping doesn't have to break the bank. Here are three ways to make sure you don't go overboard:

1. Before you head to the mall, sift through your kids' drawers and closets to see what still fits and what's intact. Then make a list of exactly what each child needs. You might save yourself from buying three pairs of jeans when your child only needs one. 

2. Go shopping with your kids. Children can be picky about their attire. If they're part of the decision making, they're more likely to actually wear it.

3. Don't buy everything before school starts. Wait until the teacher gives you a list of what your child needs. That way you don't waste money, and you might find better discounts.
