Back to School!

Now that the 4th of July has come and gone, most stores are beginning to (if they haven't already had them up) bring out their school supply sections.  The Walmart and Target in my area have almost their entire areas up already and have been stocking it for the past couple weeks. 

It also means it's time for all the back-to-school sales where you can get a ton of stuff for not a lot of money (if you take advantage of the deals). 

It's also the time of year that a lot of parents fret over because they can't afford to buy school supplies for their kids.  Last year, about this time, I mentioned the thought donating school supplies to those that are in need.  This year, I'm mentioning it once more.  Staples is always collecting school supplies at the front of most of their stores and there are usually a lot of community organizations (Boys and Girls Clubs, churches, etc) that take up collections to help those in their area.  You can check out my post from last year here.  

Remember, using the back-to-school sales, you don't have to break your own bank account to help out kids that could really use these things.  Last year in one trip I got about 15 different things varying from pens to folders and a binder for under $2 at a Target weekly sale to donate.  \

But whether you're shopping for yourself, your kids, or kids in need the deals are beginning to come out at full speed!
