I always save a few things on my kids supply list for them to pick out for school each year. We usually pick a day to do our school shopping where we buy their new shoes, backpacks, and we also buy the rest of the things on their school lists that I havenít found on sale already. We make a day of it and it always includes lunch at a place they choose.
This year before choosing your day to go school shopping with your kids, plan ahead a little bit to get yourself the best deals on back to school items. Maybe with the money you save, youíll cave and buy your 1st grader those $50 pair of shoes heís been asking for all summer (not that anyone would actually do that).
