Each August Louisiana has a Tax Free Holiday. Last year it was the first weekend of August. You can save at least $8 per $100 and your saving may add up even more if the items are on sale.
Look at your financial situation and make a school supply budget that is comparable to your household income. School supply shopping should not put you into debt. Buy the most essential items first and gradually complete your list as more money becomes available. If you children distract you to overspend while shopping make arrangements and go shopping on your own.
Having a plan before you start your shopping will help you mentally and financially.
