This year, LD Products just made it easier to find quality supplies at a great price, so you can grab what you need and get back to summer break. To save you time, we are featuring some of our biggest discounts on popular school essentials and we even have a few quick money saving tips to share too. Read on to start saving!
Quick Saving Tips
Shop with a Plan in Mind
Before you start shopping, create a plan! Map out exactly what you need and set a proposed budget so there are no unexpected surprises when it is time to buy. Most teachers issue a classroom supply list but you aren’t going to use all of those supplies on the first day. Figure out which school supplies are absolute must-haves for the first few weeks of school and plan on budgeting for the non-essentials later in the school year.
Consult the Supply Closet
Some perfectly good school supplies from last year’s shopping spree could be hiding in the closet. Check your home supply closet, office desk drawer and your kid’s backpack for salvageable supplies. Not all of your supplies should have to be brand new!
Take advantage of a tax-free weekend
Many states have started hosting tax-free weekends just in time for back to school. If you plan accordingly, you can skip the sales tax and score a great deal on all your classroom essentials. TaxJar offers a complete list of participating states on their website. Unfortunately not every state participates, but the list continues to grow every year.
Back to school deals seem to start earlier every year. To keep track of the best sales, set a reminder for the sale start time on your smart phone. Create a checklist with an app like Todoist or Google Tasks so no supply gets left behind! LD Product’s back to school sale runs from August 13th-20th, check out all of the great deals on our back to school deals page.
