As summer vacation draws to a close for students and teachers, there is one perk for the weeks to come: back-to-school shopping. But as most parents know, filling your cart with notebooks, binders, pens, pencils, glue sticks, and markers can get expensive and quickly. Add new first week of school outfits to the mix and you can easily spend hundreds of them. That’s why it’s crucial to take advantage of the back-to-school sale while you can.
The next few days will be a great time to stock up on discounted tech items, clothing and school supplies, as retailers like Samsung, J Crew and Staples organize back-to-school sales on all of the above.
