Thrifty Stores for Back to School Shopping

Don't forget to check out Goodwill and the Salvation Army stores for good buys on clothing. Stick to neutrals when buying the basics and you can expand your wardrobe.

Goodwill also usually has office and school supplies. Especially 3 ring binders and "Trapper Keepers" . These can be relaminated cheaply with shelf liner or in your childs favorite design if they don't like the pattern on the cover. My children love the plain black or white 3 ring binders from Goodwill, and just cover them in stickers.

Yard sales are also great. We hit them all summer long. Most parents are "cleaning out" their child's unneeded or partially used school supplies after school is out.

For office supplies, watch the paper for "Going out of business" sales. Doesn't matter what kind of business. They usually have large over stocks of office supplies they haven't even thought about disposing of yet. Just be bold and ask. I got a car load of office supplies from a furniture store last year that was going out of business for $40, including a file cabinet and some older electronics like calculators and adding machines.
