Best Back to School Supplies Prices and Store Sales Roundup

ID-10046485It’s hard to believe that back to school is right around the corner. My favorite site that I found last year for back to school supplies pricing is Coupon Project. Angela’s very informative post “Best Back to School Supplies Prices.”

Angela works with top bloggers in the U.S. and “at any given week during the next two months, you can come here and know where to shop to get the best deals on the supplies on your kids’ lists!”

In her brilliance, Angela compiled a great printable list of best prices for school supplies. Angela also created a Google Doc spreadsheet that compares prices at many retail and office supply stores that will be sure to save time and money! She also had a great idea to restock your home office supplies and buy extra supplies to donate to a school of your choice.

Although Georgia goes back to school earlier than most (August 7), research of school supply deals over the past few years confirms that most deals occur in August. Yet, there are still deals to be found for July.

Georgia’s back to school tax holiday is August 1 and 2, 2014. The best items to buy are the big ticket electronics items if you have students going to college or needing technology for school. “Purchases of clothing (up to $100 per item), computers and related accessories (up to $1,000 per item) and school supplies ($20 per item) are exempt.”

As for back to school clothing? We have great consignment stores as well as retail stores in Forsyth County, GA. The Collection Forsyth and North Georgia Premium Outlets are having various summer clearance sales and a back to school preview.

On the consignment side, Hut No. 8 recently opened in Johns Creek, GA for tween and teen brand name clothing fashions. Kid to Kid Cumming is a great resource for elementary and preschool aged play clothes.

Passion for Savings and Retail Me Not has a round up of back to school clothing sales, deals and discounts - check back for updates.

What are your favorite back to school deal sites? Where do you shop? Most importantly, how do you cope?

Pick Your Own Sunflowers in Forsyth County, GA

the anderson's sunflower farm in cumming, gaOne of our favorite traditions is picking sunflowers at The Anderson Family sunflower farm in South Forsyth at Highway 9 and Shiloh Road (near Majors Road).

You can pick your own or buy from the stand. It also makes a great background for family photos. I drove by the farm for years when going to work and I am really glad I finally stopped! Now it is a tradition for the girls and I to visit the sunflowers, take pictures and pick their favorites!

The Andersons report that they will open on July 5th and remain open from 7am – 7pm, 7 days a week while the sunflowers are in bloom. They look forward to seeing you on the farm! Also, go follow them on Instagram at AndersonSunflowers.

“The sunflowers are growing! We expect to officially open the farm to the public on July 5th. There will be a $10 entry fee per car. We will also sell the flowers $12 per dozen and $8 per half dozen. Professional photographers are welcome! We do charge $35 per full session and $25 per mini session. You do not have to schedule with us ahead of time, just bring your clients and snap as many photos as you’d like! We will be open 7am-7pm, 7 days a week while they are in bloom. Please keep in mind that the season is short and will probably only last 4-6 weeks, depending on the weather. Keep checking back on our page for updates and photos! We look forward to seeing you at the sunflower farm soon!!” The Anderson’s Sunflowers is on Facebook. Please check their FB page for updates.
