Save Money on School Uniforms

Does your school require a dress code or school uniform? If so, here are some ways to save.

  • Check your mailbox. A couple of days ago, I got a coupon from Sears that was good on Dockers for kids.
  • Shop online with a coupon code. There are several codes available right now, from free shipping at Walmart to $10 off $75 at Cookies.
  • Swap or borrow from a friend. Kids outgrow their uniforms so quickly, why not swap sizes with parents of kids that go to the same school?
  • Shop used. Many children’s consignment or outgrown sales have plenty of appropriate dress code clothing and uniforms, often discounted pretty heavily.
  • Check last year’s lost and found. Your school may have some sweaters and other uniform components that were never claimed from last year. Some schools sell these items, some donate them and some will give them to you for the asking.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
