Saving On Everything Back To School

The back to school madness is underway and we are all looking for ways to cut costs this time of year. Expectations run high, there are new book bags, sneakers, clothing, school supplies and lunch supplies. The list can be long and expensive. BUT, let's not worry about what others are doing or what the kids expect. In my books, it is better to teach frugality, and a reduced waste approach through re-using and recycling. Let's teach our children that they do not need NEW everything, there are so many items that can be re-used and recycled from previous years.
