Back to School Savings Tips

posted on Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Back-to-school shopping can be one of the most exciting times of the year, but it can also be stressful. With everything going on in the world, you can expect several changes to the way we do back-to-school shopping. Fortunately, we have provided you with four savings tips that will help you shop for school supplies successfully in 2020.

Search your house:

Before you go out shopping for brand new school supplies, sweep your house. There could easily be school supplies lying around your house from previous years. You may find school supplies that were bought and haven't even been used. Finding school supplies that have been bought in previous years could end up saving you a significant amount of money. 

Shop Hy-Vee:

Whether it's shopping through Aisles Online or in the store, Hy-Vee is a great place to go and stock up on back-to-school supplies. There are many great deals on all back-to-school items, including main essentials for only $1. Be on the lookout next time you're in one of the Hy-Vee stores, or get started right now with Aisles Online.

Tax-free weekend:

Every year, the state of Iowa offers tax savings for back-to-school supplies. Hold off until the weekend of August 7th & 8th to make these purchases. You can save on items like school supplies, technology, clothing, and more!

Start early:

Right now is a perfect time to begin your back-to-school shopping. Items are just beginning to go on sale. It is important to not wait too long, because you might miss out on some of the best deals. Getting a head start on your shopping will give you more time to find the best deals. It also allows you to buy items in bulk, that way you will have supplies readily available during the school year when it is time to re-stock.
