Happy Friday! We’ve been focused this week on everything Back to School related!
While researching some content I stumbled upon some pretty shocking stats!
Did you know that teachers spend an average of $485 out of pocket each year and parents spend about $635 average for back to school? I believe it to be true since I know I’ve already come close to that, shopping for our three kids, even with shopping like a rock star using cash back, free shipping and the FatWallet forums! And we still have gym uniforms and gym shoes yet to buy!
We published an awesome infographic covering What Students Really Want for Back to School. We’ve republished the Teacher Discount Cheat Sheet and Student Discount Cheat Sheet posts on the blog for your back to school shopping pleasure! And we’re working on even more Back to School content for next week!
Looking for ways to squeeze a bit more fun into the last few days of summer? Here are a couple of posts to give you ideas:
- 60 Bargain Activities for Beating the Back to School Blues
- 15 Budget Friendly Summertime Family Activities
P.S. If you haven’t done your Back to School shopping yet, be sure to check out our cash back deals here:
