Well, it's somehow back to school shopping time again, but with prices still going up everywhere, we can really use aaaaaall the money-saving tips.
1. "Hit up back to school sales at office supply stores like Office Depot and Staples. You can get many items for under $1 right before school starts. They always have a huge selection, unlike the big box stores."
2. "In the state of New Jersey this year, the governor declared that August 28 to September 5 will be a tax holiday from all school-related items, including sporting items needed to participate in extracurricular sports; no tax will be levied on these items. The list is on the NJDOE website, as well as the state's official page. No one in the media seems to be covering this too broadly, so I've been posting about it in every teacher/parent Facebook group I'm in."
Note: Other states also have tax holidays for back to school shopping and at other times throughout the year. You can see a list of tax holidays for all states here.
