Dora games

My kids love to play dora games on the computer when they get home from school. The boys prefer the diego ones but they will play either as long as there is action involved. They would play all day if I let them but I am old school and make them go outside and play.

Back to School Shopping Tips

School is right around the corner and both parents and kids are excited about getting everything ready for the new school year. One of the most important things that you need to do is go shopping. Shopping for school supplies can be fun and you don’t have to break the budget if you follow a few simple tips.

Here are some back to school shopping tips that can help you get the best deals for less.

·   Get a complete list of the supplies required by the school. This helps to guarantee you buy only what you need.  This way you will not be stuck with items your child can’t use.

·   Find out what the dress code is and only buy the clothing that is acceptable. Otherwise, you are going to end up with a bunch of outfits that can only be worn on the weekends and nothing for school.

·   Set a budget and stick to it. Your kids will always find clothing and other items they want but that are not suited or necessary for school.  These are better left for another shopping day. Only buy the items that can be used for school on this trip.

·   Shop smart. Compare prices, clip coupons, and deals at and consider the quality of the product. Paying a low price for a product that doesn’t last through the beginning of the school year is not beneficial. It would be smarter to pay a little more up front and have a product that will last all year.

·   Start with the most important items first and work down to the least important. When shopping for clothing if you don’t have a lot of money to spend start with a few outfits that you can mix and match, then plan for when you can buy more.

Back to school shopping doesn’t have to be stressful and hectic. Use the tips listed above to help you get the most from your shopping trip and save money in the process.  The earlier you start the easier this back to school shopping will be.
