Best Back to School Supplies Prices and Store Sales Roundup 2015

back to school supplies shopping dealsJust as we are getting into the swing of summer, it’s hard to believe that back to school is right around the corner.

Here are some great back to school shopping resources as you prepare for the new school year!

The site Pocket Your Dollars is posting weekly back to school shopping deals on school supplies so be sure to check this blog out before you go to the stores.

Passion for Savings is another great site to check out for back to school shopping deals, tips, state tax free weekend dates and more.

Another site that I found for back to school supplies pricing is Coupon Project. Unfortunately this year she is unable to provide the spreadsheet for best back to school supply prices, but she will still be reporting in-depth on prices for Target, Amazon and Fred Meyer and offering lots of tips.

Although Forsyth County, GA goes back to school earlier than most (August 6, 2015), research of school supply deals over the past few years confirms that most deals occur in AugustYet, there are still deals to be found for July.

Georgia’s back to school tax holiday is July 31 – August 1, 2015. 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.” Here is helpful information and a list of eligible items from 11Alive – “Georgia tax-free weekend: What you need to know.”

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, Uptown Cheapskate and Plato’s Closet are favorite spots 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?
