Get more with less — cut your school budget with 10 simple tips anyone can use.
Start By Getting Organized
Save money and time by creating a game plan. Take an inventory of your child’s closet and evaluate what already fits (collect clothes that don't fit and donate them or sell online from a site like Twice or thredUP). From there, determine the new items you’ll need to buy for the school year. Do the same for school supplies. Are some items in okay--but not great--shape? See if you can make it a few more months before replacing them (for example, great sales for backpacks resurface in September after school has started).
