Share Back To School Shopping Tips with Visa

Back to school shopping with my mom growing up would start with getting up early. Early for her being we would leave the house around 9 am and get to the mall around 10 and spend the entire day shopping. We would go from store to store and end up exhausted. It was like a shopping marathon for me. This is my daughter’s first year at school as she’s starting Kindergarten and I have no idea where to start with back to school shopping. Target has her school supply list and that seemed easy enough but how many new clothes is she supposed to get. One new outfit? Two? Three? I don’t think she needs new clothes but I want her to have something new for her first day, that just seems like tradition.

Do I get her some underwear? How many pairs of shoes? How many new dresses. She loves dresses and it seems that she has grown an inch or two over the summer. I know I’m making mountains out of mole hills here but it’s her first year. It’s my first year. I think it’s just the anxiety of having her go to school but I need serious help.

    My back-to-school shopping tip is to hit up the local thrift stores. The Goodwill stores around here sell school supplies!

    Our state has tax free shopping days for back to school supplies. You can save money by not having to pay taxes on select back to school items including computers.
