You want your little one to stay small forever. Then they’d never have to grow up, start dating, go off to college…and you certainly wouldn’t have to buy as many clothes if there were no growth spurts. Sure, you can find stain solutions until the cows come home, but how can you save money when your youngins are constantly growing out of the clothes you’ve managed to get the grass stains out of? As your children head back to school, we’ve got some suggestions to help you save on this year’s sizes.
- Never pay full price. Obviously the first step is to always check at CouponCactus.com. We’re constantly adding new sales, bigger cash back and new stores. What better way to save money than by earning money on the stuff you buy anyway?
- Shop around. While you’re online, shop around! You can bet tons of stores will be offering free shipping and back to school sales—sometimes better sales than you’ll find in store!
- Coupons are your friends. Watch your mailbox for coupon mailers. Kohls, Target, Walmart—your local stores are certainly going to be having sales and telling you all about them. Bring those coupons to the store and save big.
- Swap! Your friends probably have a kid or two, right? Well, adult clothing swaps are fun, why not have a kid’s clothing swap? Make a ladies night out of it!
- Help the Salvation Army. It may take some digging, but you can definitely find some gems in the Salvation Army clothing racks—and you can’t beat the prices. Whether you’re shopping for school clothes or play clothes, you may want to check out your local thrift shop.
