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?
