Back to School Deals

Have you heard the phrase “the early bird gets the worm?” That couldn’t be more true in the case of back to school supplies. Even though it’s only August, retailers have started plying their back to school wares early this year. By mid July it was difficult to find a bathing suit, but a cinch to find the perfect back to school outfit for the fall. What does all of this mean for you? Deals, deals, deals!  With the deals beginning so early, you get a longer time to take advantage of the sales, which tend to change every week (so check stores regularly). Take a look at these on-line and in-store deals and scoop up must have back to school items before September.
