Back to College: Is your student ready?


I can’t believe back-to-school time is upon us again, and for our family, this time of year brings even more impact, as our oldest daughter is moving to college today. 

National College Move-In Week begins August 14th, 2016, and I’ve partnered with Flipp, my favorite shopping circular app, to share some Back to College tips for families and students:

As always, I want to save as much money as possible while still making sure my daughter has everything she needs to live on her own at her university. This is a great time to clean out the closets at home for everything from blanket to towels to dishes that can be handed down to your student. Free is always the best price!

Of course, there are sure to be other items that you may not have on hand at home (or not be willing to part with.) Whether you’re looking for a mini fridge or a set of extra-long sheets to fit those oversized dorm beds, you’ll want to get the best prices on the items you’re buying new. The great news is that most department and big-box stores are having Back-to-College sales this month on essential gear for both dorm and apartment dwellers.

How do you know you’re getting the best prices possible?
