Back to School Bargains

Back to school time is busy and expensive!  New clothes, new shoes, pencils, paper, crayons.......the list goes on and on.  Here are some simple ideas to cut make going back to school easy on the wallet. 

Resale stores have made quite a come back in recent years.  There are lots of great stores to get gently used clothes at bargain prices.  Plato's Closet in Flint offers brand name clothes for kids and teens.  Not only can you buy clothes at great prices, but bring your gently used ones to sell.  The Salvation Army Thrift Stores are another great option.  I recommend the store in Clarkston or Rochester Hills.  These are both located in old grocery stores and offer a large variety of clothing for the whole family.   For closer bargains, try the Goodwill stores in the area.  The Goodwill carries a lot of brand new items that were discontinued from Target stores!  A local great for kids is Waddles and Toddles in Grand Blanc.  This resale shop offers item for babies and kids. 

Not only are these stores great for clothing, but you can often times find school supplies at Salvation Army's and Goodwill's as well.

Make the shopping trip more fun for the kids by turning into a treasure hunt!  See who the first will be to find a great item or who can get the best bargain.   You may not be able to find everything you need, but you might be surprised at what you do find!
