I know school just got out, and some kids don’t even get out for another week or so, but now through the end of July is a great time to do some back to school shopping. Most stores will be clearing out their summer merchandise to bring in the new fall merchandise.
If you kids wear short sleeve shirts year round then you should be able to find some great deals, especially towards the end of July when they are trying to really clear out the remainder of the summer stuff. My kids prefer to just wear short sleeve shirts all year long, they will throw on a zip hoodie on over their tee if it gets too cold.
Here are some tees I picked up yesterday at Aeropostale that my daughter will use for school next year. All of these shirts were marked down to $3.99. I also used a 20% off coupon, so I was able to get each shirt for only $3.19.
I paid $12.77 (before tax) for all 4 shirts and the original retail was $81.00. I love a great deal!
So, keep an eye on the clearance racks at your favorite stores over the next couple of months. You should be able to find some amazing deals that will save you tons of money on your back to school clothes shopping. I highly recommend shopping year round, but I find the biggest clearance markdowns happen in January and July when the most drastic changes in the seasons happen.
I would love to hear how you handle back to school shopping at your house. Do you do it year round? Do you have a set amount? Do the kids pay? Please share!
