School has just ended and here I am sitting here, late at night, thinking about all the items I will need for my son in September when he starts kindergarten.

Most of my purchases for my family have been carefully planned out ahead of time so I can save the most amount of money possible. Since it would be very difficult to save a lot of money on every single purchase, I have honed my skills to shop smarter, not harder. The key is to know what to look for, when to shop and to use the resources available for FREE!
I have a ton of tips but will give five I use the most:
1) My first and most favorite tip is to always look for free coupon codes before you dare add anything to your shopping cart or step foot in any store! This is a no brainer. You do not have to shop online to take advantage of coupon codes. Many retailers put out printable coupons to use in their stores online as well.
