(Daily Finance) — A few other tips from moms:
- Buy uniform basics for less at Target (TGT) and Old Navy. If your school requires special emblems, see if you can order those items from Lands’ End, where patient parents can save during the 30% sales offered a few times a year.
- It’s still warm through mid-September around most of the country, so hold off on fall clothing buys until then to get the best discounts.
- Organize a kids’ clothing swap at your church, office, or around the neighborhood. Participants simply bring outgrown clothing and take items they need. Anything left over gets donated to charity.
