Save Money on School Supplies by Setting Aside Nonessential

School supplies can be expensive, but after the madness of going back to school , prices often drop. For this reason, money-saving expert Kyle James says it’s worth the wait with supplies of secondary school supplies.

James considers secondary subjects that your child will not need during the first few weeks of school. This can vary by school and grade, but James writes:

I would classify “nonessentials” as items that your child will not need during the first few weeks of school. Think about things like calculators, paper napkins, protractors, and science project supplies. If you can wait to purchase these items, you will be able to take advantage of the return-to-school discounts that take place every September. I’m talking about 75% to 90% discounts on items that retailers are desperate to clean up to make room for candy and Halloween costumes.

We’ve already told you that September is a great month to look for discounts on office supplies, and this is probably due to the fact that classes have already started at school, so these items are less in demand. If you want to save some money, you can pay for the essentials first and then wait a couple of weeks for other things. To find out more, navigate to James’ full post at the link below.
