Back to School Savings Strategies from sunset Credit Union

Back-to-school is the second-biggest shopping season of the year. In fact, according to the National Retail Federation's annual survey, parents will spend almost $670 to get one child ready for school this year.

This makes it a great time to teach budgeting basics to your children. One idea is to give your children a clothing budget and a list of necessities, and let them help make decisions on the rest of the wardrobe.

Head to the supermarket for basic supplies. Check weekly circulars for great deals on pens and loose-leaf paper, and get your weekly grocery shopping done at the same time. Bonus: buying everything in one place will save time and gas money!

Partner with another family or two to buy supplies in bulk. Then, split the cost and the supplies. Round up a couple of other parents with kids the same gender as yours but different ages, and host an annual clothes swap. Trade toys and books, too! You'll save a bundle.

Now through the end of September, Sunset Credit Union is collecting “Back to School’ items for the Beaverton School District. If you’d like to help, please bring donated school items (pencils, pens, paper etc) to Sunset Credit Union located at 1100 NW Murray Blvd.

Sunset Credit Union is a full-service, not-for-profit financial institution serving anyone who lives, works or attends school in Washington County. Visit or stop by their office at 1100 NW Murray Blvd. (across from the McDonalds in the Safeway Shopping Center) to learn more.
