Yes, it’s that time of year again. Whether you’re sending your kids back to their brick-and-mortar school or they’re going to be homeschooled this year, there’s never a better time than right now to save on back to school supplies. Almost every major retailer is having a back to school event and some states even boast tax-free weekends so you can optimize your savings. Check out our roundup of the best ways to save as we gear up for the new school year. 

Save With Your Major Retailers 

Of course, one of the best ways to save on back to school supplies is to shop at the big box stores that are having sales events right now.
