There are a lot of “back to school” sales this time of year making it a great time to buy office supplies, computers, small electronics, bedding and other household items.
A couple of years ago I took advantage of the “college” section in one store and bought a toaster and a new crockpot. Both were on sale. August seems to be the best time for sales on items that might be used in a dorm room.
Microwave ovens, laundry baskets, bedding, towels and other items can be found discounted at back to school sales. Kind of like Christmas during the summer.
This year I bought a new laptop on sale $200 dollars off the original price. I am considering a new sheet feed scanner and looking for sales.
August and September the months that I buy all of my office supplies. My business is fairly paperless but I do use some office supplies and this is the time of year that I stock up for the whole year. I’ll buy paper, pens, notebooks, folders, glue, markers and art supplies.
My own offspring are beyond school age . . which means I have more money that I can use to buy school supplies to be donated to children who need them.
This summer is going way to fast.
