Secret to saving for back-to-school for the entire year

On Your Side Advice you should use now

CLEVELAND - For the past four weeks, we've been on your side with ways to save for the start of school.  We wrap up our back to school series with the secret to making the school savings last throughout the year of classes.

Right now everything back to school is on sale. Folders, index cards, Post Its, notebooks, crayons, and backpacks are just a few of the items with discounts this week.

We caught up with Cory Archacki from Cleveland who already knows the secret to keeping the savings going for the entire school year. 

"It's better to buy it now because everything is on sale now and later on it's like a little more expensive," said Archacki.

With folders for just pennies and other supplies on deep discounts Joe Daugirdas, a.k.a. “Joe The Coupon Guy” who runs his own money-saving site, couldn't agree more. 

"You definitely want to stock up because as soon as you run out, you go out and buy whatever the price might be. And that's the key; buy it when it's on sale," explained Joe.

Racheall Davis is a cost conscious mom who’s hip to the stock up game, too.  “I got like a case of notebooks, a case of folders, pencils so I have it for the whole year," Davis told us.

It's not just supplies either.  Joe said now is the time to run to the clearance sections for clothes. "Right now summer clearance clothes are on ridiculous prices. You're not going to find that later in the year. Probably will start going down 70-80 percent off right now," Joe told us.

So don't be left out in the cold or whatever mother nature brings us.  "This crazy weather anything goes.  We might be finding 90 degree weather in December," Joe said with a laugh.
