Save money on back-to-school supplies by looking for bargains and sales. Try shopping at multiple stores to catch different sale specials. One store may have products "on special" that other stores don't. You may also be able to get a price match by presenting a competitive store's advertisement. Also, make sure you maximize your savings by taking advantage of special tax-free holidays. Don't forget to use all those coupon clippings for an even bigger discount at the checkout.
