Back to School = Back to Saving!

This article, entitled Back to School = Back to Saving! comes from

We’ve talked a lot already about Back to School; but we can’t help it! This time of year is AMAZING for saving. Even without school-aged family members, this saving season is still for you. Not only are there great deals on “school”, i.e., household/office supplies, but the specials and ‘extra’ incentives that surface for grocery items are unmatched.

Here’s an abbreviated list of the types of things to watch for and, when able, stock up on:

  1. Traditional breakfast and lunch-making foods: Cereal, cookies, crackers, milk, yogurt, peanut butter, jelly, fruit snacks/roll-ups, bread, lunch meat, drink mixes, condiments, and more.

  2. Household goods: Sandwich and food storage bags, body wash, toothpaste, razors, soap, and so on.

  3. Occasional combo deals: These are when different products pair up to bring you savings on unrelated items. An example would be buying $10 worth of crackers to receive $10 off 3 packages of socks. During back-to-school time, these come up more often. The best part is you can often still find coupons to use on the grocery part of the deal, making it even better!

  4. Straight “money off” deals: An all-time favorite, these come up often this time of year as well. They usually involve buying a certain quantity of items (mix and match) to receive money off or back (in the form of a coupon to use later) at the register. Who doesn’t love free money?

How to find the deals:

  1. Obviously, we can help – but aside from that, be sure to flip through the entire sale ad. Various extra deals are highlighted and occasionally, Catalina announcements (money-back at register), depending on the store.

  2. Keep your eyes peeled while shopping. Merchandisers use signs and shelf-shouters to announce special partner deals. Signs also spell out details, such as the dates an extra deal is running, what products qualify and any restrictions. Watch for Catalina announcement signs too – especially on the floor.

If you have missed the incredible deals the past few weeks, don’t be discouraged. Traditionally, retailers and manufacturers continue rolling them out well into September. Then, it’s on to fall savings! *sigh*… gotta love this time of year.
