Save those receipts from your elementary school shopping purchases
School shopping can get really expensive if you have more than one school aged student at home. So make sure you look for the sales to get some good deals at your local dollar store. In addition, we encourage you to SAVE those school supply receipts!
Why should you save those receipts?
First of all, some elementary schools do not give you a list of school supplies ahead of time. So this forces you to guess at what your child will need.
In addition, even if the school does post a back to school supplies list on their website, there is always the rogue teacher that wants you to purchase something different for their class.
Finally, money is tight for many families today. When you keep your receipts in a safe place you can always get a refund and put it towards the new purchases required.
Talk to your PTA about a different kind of elementary school shopping experience
Not every parent can afford new school supplies for their children. Unfortunately, school budgets can not cover student supplies either. That is why many PTA organizations like the idea of setting up a fundraiser to help out students in need. We believe that every child deserves a chance to learn and because of this, we have developed a program to assist schools like yours.
In conclusion, we help elementary schools set up a holiday school shop for their students. It provides a unique shopping experience for their students to buy gifts for the people that they love in their life.
If you would like to learn more about this program, then call us at 1-800-645-6550 or request your free kit here.
Because we believe so much in this program, we offer a “no strings” attached phone consultation to answer all of your questions.
We look forward helping you set up an elementary school shopping program to help your students.
