Shopping for school, saving money

I have been finding so many amazing blogs and websites that list deals and savings. Actually I've been quite amazed by what I've come across. In fact, it has given me a new outlook and a lot of resources to helping me, my family and friends save money.

Now, given the time of year, most of us are shopping for school supplies and in the process will be getting things for most of our children regardless of their educational status. My teenager is shopping for groceries for her and her college roommates who live in a suite on campus as well as additional items for her dorm room like storage and decorative items. My 5-year-old son will be a kindergartner and needs uniforms, paper, pencils, a backpack and a number of other things. My second daughter, who's 4, will be going to pre-kindergarten readiness at the county headstart program and she'll need jeans and other fall and winter items because she's definitely gotten taller. And, the toddler - my baby, is gonna need fall and winter items as well. I'm also going to get her some educational books so she'll have homework to do like her siblings.

That's quite a list, but thanks to Walgreens coupons I don't even have to leave the house to stock up on supplies for the smaller kids. As far as Amber is concerned, she's taking care of most of her shopping, the biggest thing we have to get is textbooks. I hope she's able to use some A1 Books coupons to help with that expense.
