Back to school season doesn't have to drain your pocket book. There are so many easy things you can do to save money. Whether you clip coupons or shop EVERYWHERE, you can save money by just spending a bit of time. Let's take a closer look at how to get the best prices on back to school supplies.

Clip Coupons

You can find some great school supply coupons in the Sunday papers leading up to back to school season. Compare the retailer ads for your area quick and easily using the Flipp app to see what coupons are available for the supplies you need.

Match Coupons to Sales

Many stores have the items that you clipped coupons for on sale so you're able to get double the savings. In some cases, you may even great free supplies or for just a penny with the right sale. The app can not only help you compare ads and price match, but you can clip digital coupons as well.


Don't limit your back to school shopping to discount department stores, such as Walmart. You can find great deals in drugstores, grocery stores, and dollar stores. Just be sure to compare the prices to make sure you're getting the best deals.

Hit the Dollar and Discount Stores

Big super stores and office supply stores aren’t the only ones with great deals on back to school supplies. You can often find great deals not only at your local dollar store, but at other discount retailers as well. I use the app to compare prices and find which retailer will offer me the best price on every item.

Check the Clearance Racks

Last, but not least, check the clearance rack in the office supply section of your favorite store to see if there are any markdowns. You can find some excellent deals that end up being cheaper than the stuff found in the back to school section. Another great tip is to look for backpacks on clearance in the bag and accessory part of the store or the sports section.

Back to school season doesn't have to empty your wallet. There are so many easy things you can do to save money. Whether you clip coupons or check clearance racks, you can get the supplies your children need without spending a fortune.
