Back to school shopping ranks right up there with Christmas as a major budget buster for families. This year, parents with children in grades K-12 are expected to spend an average of $501.00 on everything from clothing to paper and pencils, and many will spend much more.
But all that shopping doesn’t need to break the bank.
One great way to spend less is to shop in consignment stores. These days, consignment stores offer the latest styles from name brands at a savings of 50% to 70% per item. And you won’t believe how many items you’ll find with the original tag still attached!
Consignment shopping is good for the environment and even better for your budget. And if your kids have any concern they won’t be totally on-trend, check out the following pages for of-the-moment looks that were styled right off the racks at Do You DejaVu Consignment in Warrenton, and Stuff! Consignments in Gainesville.
