Back to school time not only means trying to find deals on backpacks, pens, paper, and other office supplies, but it also means shopping for clothes. That in and of itself can put a family with only 1 or 2 children back several hundreds of dollars. Here are a couple of things that I have used to help cut that cost of clothing shopping:
If you live in the Las Vegas area, you are probably very familiar with the Premium Outlets we have here. Did you know that if you go here and sign up for their VIP club you can gain access to many coupons to use at some of your favorite stores at any of their outlets (the Chelsea Premium outlets aren't specific to Las Vegas--go here to see if there is one close to your city). You can also print out a voucher for a free VIP coupon book that you can pick up at one of the outlets, full of hundreds of dollars in savings.
Another place to snag great coupons is at Old Navy Weekly which you can use online or instore to snag savings anywhere from 10%-25% off your entire purchase to coupons for $50-$75 off a $100 purchase or more. This website refreshes every 1-2 weeks at random times, and their are a limited number of the high value coupons, so those go quickly when the refresh happens, but I find that Old Navy tends to have really good deals in store anyways, and if I am going in to snag a couple of things, I go here to see what coupons I can get to lower my out of pocket expense even more.
