While the kids have been back in school for about a month now things are still pretty hectic.
Zulily and Zulily kids fashion expert Shawn Anderson have some super great tips on how to save during back to school shopping
Plan in advance: Don’t wait until August 15 to start your back to school preparation. Avoid the stress of last-minute shopping by getting started now and finish before all the good deals are gone.
Get organized: Pull together a back to school checklist so you don’t forget any of the necessities.
Shop online: Sites like zulily.com offer parents a wide variety of back to school essentials for kids, including clothes, shoes, accessories, supplies and toys, at incredible prices. You can find everything your kid needs (and more!) and save money at the same time.
Stockpile your favorite items at a discount: When you find something your child loves and needs each year for school at a great price, be sure to buy a few extra. Take advantage of these deals for years to come!
Check in with the kids: It is never a good feeling to buy your child new clothes and school supplies, only to find out that their favorite color or cartoon character has changed. Involve your kids in the shopping process so you make sure you’re buying items they like and want to use.
I joined Zulily years ago and have been hooked ever since! The savings on brand name items are amazing and I love that I can find new brands I never heard of.
This year, while searching for adorable outfits for the kids I came across Raskulls helmets on Zulily. Nothing is more important that protecting my kids noggins and what a prefect time to get a new fashion friendly helmet!
Just as important to this Mom is coffee, especially when my oldest needs to be up by 5:15 am everyday! I found these awesome coffee mugs with holder that are perfect for my counter top, freeing up much needed cabinet space.
Since I love shopping and saving so much, just ask my husband about that one, I found more items I just needed!
Since we joke that my poor husband is a redneck and we bought a vacation property in the Pocono Mountains he needed this coffee mug!
I also found some things I needed for our place such as a napkin holder
and the most awesome sign for our place ever!
