Savvy Shopping for Back to School!

J.Crew. Nike. Ralph Lauren. Gap. Under $30.

Sound good?

I thought so.

I went shopping this past weekend, and I did pretty good, I must admit. And I don’t feel guilty at all. You know why? Sales!

Here are some tips to help you get the best deals for back-to-school clothes:

-Take advantage of the J. Crew sale section. They always have a lot of cute merchandise (especially their chino shorts. I got a pair of hot pink shorts and they cost me $12 (usually $45)). All clearance merchandise is always an extra percentage off, and they also offer a student discount of 15% with an ID.

-Department stores are your friend. Stores like Dillards and Macy’s carry name brands like Nike and Ralph Lauren. They also have amazing sales that discount those brands, and they have coupons! I got a $36 Nike shirt for $17 and a $60 Ralph Lauren pajama set for $25. Score!

-Don’t be afraid to ask for a price match if something is cheaper online. Often times they’ll match it for you at checkout!

-Student discounts! There are a lot of stores and restaurants that offer student discounts. Take advantage of them and save money!
