Back to school shopping is in full effect! Do your kids attend a private school? Or perhaps they attend a public school that still requires uniforms? We know uniforms can be pricey, so today we are offering frugal tips to help you get school uniforms for your kids for less!

1. Shop Early – The sooner you start your back to school shopping, the better chance you will have finding school uniforms for the right price. You may even want to wait until after the first week of school when stuff goes on sale and you can score even more savings!

2. Comparison shop – Luckily most comparison shopping can be done through mobile applications or online with the help of a Google search. Search retail stores and make sure to check out the actual vendors or wholesale online stores that make uniforms. If you cut the middle man out (the retail store), you can save up to 30% on your kids school uniforms!

3. Set a budget – Before you even start shopping, know how much money you have to work with. You can use a free budgeting tool like PowerWallet to help you reach saving goals and then you can set a spending limit so you don’t overspend and find yourself in a spending blender!

4. Know your needs vs. wants – Although it may sound like a great idea to stock up on school uniforms all at once because it will reduce your laundry washing needs, it may put a strain on your cash flow and budget.  Only buy what you really need and make sure you pin point for yourself and your kids so you don’t overspend.
