Back to School $25 + $25 Giveaway

Our four year old quadruplets just started Pre-K this year so finally all five of our kids are in school.  Even though we did lots of advance planning and spread out the purchases of their uniforms and supplies over the last year, the back to school season has still been a little tough on the budget given all the little extra expenses that add up pretty quickly.  I know a lot of you are in the same boat so I thought it would be fun to have a Back to School giveaway to help give some lucky winner’s budget a bit of a boost!

My 8/2 Publix Trip - $79.18 for $23.03 or 71% Off

It feels unnatural not to be buying tons of school supplies when they’re so prominently placed in the stores right now, but I’ve been planning ahead on school supply purchases ever since before the kids started school and am always able to save huge on them in advance. That being said I just couldn’t pass up a good deal on Sharpie markers since I’m addicted to them. I was also thrilled with the great deals on yogurt and cereal and looking forward to using the hot dogs at a cookout tomorrow! Today at Publix I bought $79.18 worth of groceries for $23.03, or 70% off after coupons and $10/$50 Apple Market q from today’s Pensacola News Journal. Here are the deals:

Take Advantage of Your State’s Tax Free Shopping Days

Take Advantage of Your State’s Tax Free Shopping Days

Back to school shopping is my favorite shopping season of the year since I work on Christmas and birthday gifts all year long to make it less painful on the budget.  One of the best ways to save another 7% to 10% right off the top (depending on where you live) is to plan ahead and shop on your state’s tax free shopping days. Many states have tax-free shopping weekends in August, where customers don’t pay sales tax on items like school supplies, electronics and clothing.  Use the list below to find out if your state has a tax-free weekend and what items it exempts. Most of the information below is courtesy of TaxAdmin.org and I’d recommend verifying each state through the links provided.

Due to the cyclical nature of retail sales, different things go on sale at different times of the year on a predictable basis.  Much like stockpiling your groceries, where you buy enough of what you need when it’s on sale to tide you over until the next sale, you can really take advantage of seasonal shopping to save some big bucks on your household expenditures!
