Freedom Financial Offers Ways to Avoid Hard Fiscal Lessons When Back-to-School School Shopping

The end of summer heralds two new beginnings. The start of autumn and a new school year. Freedom Financial respectfully offers some suggestions to ease the transition into the latter.

When most people go to the supermarket for a week’s worth of groceries they take a list. A list prevents overspending on unneeded items and saves time because you know what aisles to visit. The same principle should be applied back-to-school shopping. If your child’s school doesn’t already provide a list of needed supplies contact his/her school and ask for one.

In fact, ask for a list of needed supplies for the next grade your kinder will be entering. You might be able to purchase those supplies on sale. Besides the potential savings, this could eliminate the need to go school shopping the following year.

Figure out item by item what you have to spend. Once you’ve made your budget break it down into must have and can wait for columns. As the back-to-school shopping season winds down supplies will naturally go on clearance. Last minute shopping can yield more savings.

Before spending a dime scour your home and office for serviceable school supplies you might already have.

If practicable hold off on buying school clothes. Stores transitioning from fall to winter clothing equals discounts on the fall clothing. In fact, clothing prices tend to be lowest in October.

Freedom Financial hopes these ideas prove helpful. Since its creation in 2002 Freedom Financial has grown into a multiple company online resource for those looking for mortgages personal loans and relief from excessive debt. From the time that co-founders Bradford Stroh and Andrew Housser had the vision that would become Freedom Financial until today the company has helped its 350,000 clients with debt resolution in excess of 6 billion dollars.
