School’s back! Whether you’re headed back yourself or you have kids who’ve already started their education, it’s time for back to school shopping. Clothing, notebooks, backpacks, calculators… It seems like the shopping list gets longer every year.
Unfortunately, I have some bad news. Not only are there more things you “have to” buy, but the prices of common school supplies are skyrocketing every year. For example, did you know that the average price of a 3-hole punch has gone up $7?
Since I know you all are expert budgeters and having all the info is the best way to make a smart budget, here’s an excellent infographic from outlining what you can expect when it comes to school supplies this year. Some of these numbers are pretty outrageous, so be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom, where they outline some great ways to save.
(Teaser: You don’t have to buy everything brand new.)
If you’ve already done your school shopping this year, take a look at the info here and then go sign into your RedMica account and start planning for next fall. It’s never too early to get started!
