Back to School Shopping


Most children love get ready for school. This time of year may be a challenge for children with learning disabilities. The anticipation builds as the days come near. Parents canít wait for school to start, but they are not so happy when it comes to shopping for new clothes, shoes, backpacks, and school supplies.

The back to school expense can be cut drastically by shopping at discount outlets, Goodwill Stores, or even garage sales. Children with learning disabilities are no different from other kids when it comes to looking good for school. This time of year could be used to go on a shopping spree with your child.

Shopping trips might be the perfect time to discuss money and smart purchases. Some cities offer tax free weekends. This would be a great way to save money, especially if you have more than one child to shop for. Sales are always a great way to save.

School uniforms are required in some school systems. This makes the task of shopping a lot easier. Uniforms take the tedious job of matching outfits out of the equation. This is also a good way to level the playing field when it comes to designer clothing. Because most schools that require uniforms will not allow logos, it is easier for all of the children to fit in. All children are considered equal.

School supplies can be very costly. Most churches and organizations sponsor back to school drives. They may offer free supplies to the public. If making purchases at the store, it would be a great idea to shop the sales during off seasons. This way, more supplies for the money can be purchased.

This would be the perfect opportunity for a charitable giving. Many times, community members would like to help, but are not sure how. Schools often supply stores a copy of school supply lists. Purchases can be made from the list, and then donated to the school. Another way to donate is to adopt a child. The school could offer donations to needy families.

Back to school time can be very, very expensive. It doesnít always have to be. Some families are fortunate enough to have clothing that belonged to another child. The important thing is that the clothes are neat and clean.
