I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is coming to an end. For parents of school-aged children, that means it's time to stock up on school supplies. Your favorite retailers have cleared the shelves of charcoal and sunscreen to make room for pencils and backpacks. But before you start crying, I'm here to tell you that you don't have to blow your entire budget on school supplies. If you want to get the items on your kids' list for less, you should know about the back to school items from Target for $5 or less.
There's something about Target that can make even the most disciplined, budget-conscious shopper lose all of their will power. You walk in for a bottle of shampoo and end up leaving hours later with a cart full of other things you had no idea you needed but bought because they were just so darn cheap. And school supplies are no exception. Target has a huge selection of pencils, markers, crayons, and more for under $5.
The first day of school will be here before you know it. So get out of the pool and get to your local Target to stock up on all of the school supplies your kids need. With all of the money you save on supplies, you'll still have money left to spend on a cool back to school wardrobe — for your kid o yourself.
