Back-To-School Shopping Tips
- Back to school shopping is starting early this year. Be sure to come soon to take advantage of sales.
- Arrive at the property early to avoid crowds and find a prime parking spot.
- Make lists of specific things for each child before you get there to streamline the process.
- Visit the property on a week day in the afternoon, that’s when you’ll find the smallest crowd.
- If you’re buying a backpack for your child, use that to help carry items you’ve just purchased.
- Save heavy purchases for last so you don’t have to carry them around.
