CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – The beginning of August reminds us school is just around the corner, time to get ready to go back to class. This year, the National Retail Federation is expecting some good trends from consumers. Spending is expected to be back to 2008 levels, with those surveyed estimating they will spend just over $600 for clothing, supplies and electronics.
If you need to stretch every back to school dollar you have, several sales are happening in the next few weeks that can help. The list below includes dates and locations of three great opportunities in the Charlotte region where you can go to shop for your kids. If you are concerned that your child will not wear previously owned clothing, speak to their sensitivity to recycling. Kids love to be a part of something positive for the planet.
Most consignment shops and second hand stores will not sell clothing that is stained or needs mending. Here is a great example to share; a pair of Lucky jeans from a second hand shop will likely cost you 80 percent less than they would at a traditional store. Every time you have a chance to share budgeting ideas with your child, it is a chance for your family to grow closer and understand that dealing with these tough economic times is a family effort.
Enjoy your back to school shopping. I hope this helps!
