Just like that, July is almost gone and August is right around the corner! Is it just me or has the summer passed by swiftly? Depending on what part of the country you live in, August and September is the prime back-to-school preparation season! August is the time most parents are gearing up their coupon clipping, sale hunting and trying to find all their children’s school supplies & clothes for the best price. We want to offer our frugal moms and dads some expert shopping advice to get the most bang for your buck and stay under budget this back-to-school shopping season!

1. Make a plan – Make sure to do an inventory of what school items your kids have left over from last school year, what clothes they need and what can be re-used.Don’t take your kids back-to-school shopping without a list to help keep you all focused. That way, with a list in hand, you won’t find yourself buying unnecessary items and won’t go over budget.

2. Shop now – Don’t wait until last minute or prime back-to-school shopping season when supplies will be low, crowds will be crazy and the same may not even be the best you can find.

3. User PowerSavers – PowerWallet’s smart and geo-based coupons and deals can help you save more this back-to-school shopping season! Simply visit to sign up for free and not only get access to great deals but manage your personal finances smarter and easier.

4. Wait for big price drops – If you have enough school supplies, uniforms and clothes for your kids schooling through their first week, wait until school starts and take advantage of the huge price drops! Once school has started in your local town or city, most retailers will drop their prices even further!
