Better Business Bureau Tips on Back to School Prep

Planning and research are key...

From the Better Business Bureau...

It may seem like school just let out, but it’s already time to start thinking about the new school year!

With back-to-school specials running all summer long, parents and students can start their shopping early and spread it out to avoid a hefty back-to-school shopping bill all at once.

Better Business Bureau offers up the following tips on how to shop smart when starting your back-to-school or back-to-college shopping:

Make a List

You can either wait for the school supplies list to come out, or start shopping without it. Even if you don’t have the exact list, you should have an idea of what to purchase regarding school clothes, and basic supplies. Jot everything down on a list and stick to it! Impulse buying can jack up your overall total in a hurry.

Shop Your Home

You may already have some of the items from last year hidden in your home. Why purchase the same thing twice?
