I went into my local Staples to show you all how to save some cash on your Back To School shopping! I found a bunch of great deals including 50% off backpacks plus glue, pencil boxes, and crayons for only a quarter.

There are lots of ways to save on Back to School and if you shop the sales early, you can really save.

Back to School Shopping Tips

-Start now!
-Focus on the deals each week and grab the things on your list that are on sale.
-Take a look at the office supply stores.
-Look for free after rebate or rewards items, penny or quarter deals and anything 50% off or B1G1.
-Leave the kiddos at home so you can focus on what’s on sale, not impulse buys.
-Keep away from licensed characters or fancy over-priced brands.
-Take advantage of in-store promotions like $2 off a binder when you recycle an old one at Staples.
-Pay attention to limits. If you are a teacher, some stores will allow you to purchase more than the limit.
-Don’t forget you can always price match at Target or Walmart if your store is out of something.
