Use Shopping Rewards, Points and Coupons
Loyalty points and coupons are beneficial not only to business owners but to shoppers as well. As a shopper , consistently using coupons helps you save bucks in shopping in a long-term period. The percentage off in every coupon is a big help to lessen your payable amount in every shopping, same goes to loyalty points which are convertible to a certain amount that can be used to pay for the goods and services.
Reuse School Supplies
Being thrifty is good. Together with your kids, make an inventory of their school supplies from last year. For sure there are certain supplies that can still be used, sort them out and upcycle. Make a new notebook out of clean sheets from the old one by binding them together and sewing using yarn. Instead of buying new pens and markers, you can refill them by buying refills. For the pencils, if they are not broken yet, just sharpen it so you can use it again. It’s best that in early childhood, teach your kids to practice thriftiness like reusing last school year supplies such as backpack, leftover pencils, crayons and notebooks. There are many ways to recycle school supplies which you can find online. Practicing this can save money and the environment.
Purchase in Bulk
Now is the time to change your thoughts of buying supplies in bulk as overspending or getting too many products.. Actually, buying school supplies in bulk like notepads, notebooks and other consumable school supplies can help you save time and money. Businesses give higher discounts on bulk purchases. Stocking up on school supplies can save you time from going on multiple shopping trips. You can as well co-shopping with other parent friends who need school supplies same with your kids.
Even though you have enough budget or extra money, it’s very practical and frugal to apply the methods I mentioned. These budgeting tips can save you money this school year and you can use them for other household expenses.
