At this time of the year, families are busy getting ready for school. Instead of starting the process at the store, check to see what you already have first. Chances are that you have many items written on the supply list in your house, from last year shopping or just hidden away somewhere. Take the time to look for what you have, and it will help you save money right away. Also, remember to check for sales online and for the option to pick up in the store for even more savings.
