Hey all!

School is just around the corner and it’s time of the year again to get ready for Back-to-School! Whether your child is going to college or junior high or the 5th grade, you need to get ready!

Here are some quick tips I wanted to share students and parents for surviving the school year with ease:

1. Shop at the 99 Cent Only Store! They have name brands like mead and disney as well as organic foods for only 99 cents! You can find your local 99 cent only store by clicking here!

2. Always check your Sunday Newspaper fliers for great back to school savings! If you don’t get the Sunday paper you can always go directly to the stores website like to see their new flier each week.

3. Check your local thrift store for great clothes and back packs! I have found plenty of in style, brand new, with tags still on the items at thrift or second hand stores.

4. Get yourself a Wrap N Mat or Wrap N Mat Pouch to pack lunches with! It’s reusable and it will save you a ton of money on how to pack your child’s lunch! You can get one by clicking here!

5. Get yourself a Costco Card! If you are like me and your drive your kid to school Costco has the cheapest Gas if you’re lucky to have a Costco with a gas station in it. You can also get good deals on stocking up on lunch snacks! You can sign up to Costco by clicking here!

6. Look online for coupons! is great!

7. What’s also important about going back to school is having a reliable combination lock to keep the safety of your belongings.  You need to make sure you have a good lock for your kids locker so his belongings are safe at school! Master Lock school and campus security products are perfect for this!

8. Invest in quality clothes for your kids so you won’t have to worry about constantly buying clothes throughout the year.

9. Try to contact the school and the teachers for your kids upcoming classes to make a list of exactly what your kids need so You don’t waste money getting the wrong items!

10. Last but not least! Buy the year ahead of time. Once the Back to School time period at stores has ended all the Back to School stuff goes on sale! You should stock up then for next year! I’ve gotten lots of paper and folders that I bought last year for this year.

I hope this list helps for you survive the school year with ease!
