How To Save Money On Back To School Clothes?

Spending money on Back to School items can be expensive when you have to buy supplies, book bags, clothes, and shoes. But why overpay for clothes and shoes when there are ways to help you save and spend less out of pocket.

With school starting back shortly your pockets will be drained if you don’t carefully shop for your child and or children.

In previous years people have mastered how to shop for supplies to get the best deals. You can now learn to do the same with clothes as well.

Tips to Save on Clothes:

1. Check the closet and dressers of your child before making any sudden moves. Always have the child to try on the clothes that they already have before making a purchase. I had my daughter to clean out the closet, and I was surprised at the items that she pulled out still with price tags on them. She had shorts that still had the tags on them that I purchased just as it started to get hot outside. So I don’t have to buy her any shorts at this time she can wear what she has already. Now her shirts are an entirely different story they are going to have to be replaced. Her shoes as well are all worn out as if she had them for years. Checking the closet and dressers has saved me time and money in the store.

2. Do you reside in a state that offers the sales tax holiday? Here in North Carolina, they don’t provide a sales tax holiday. But several states to participate in the sales tax holiday. Check the website to see if your state is a participates and to see what dates it is.

3. Shopping from home, you reap several benefits by locating online couponing codes that will help you save money. Most sites offer free shipping on a purchase of a certain amount. The benefits of shopping at home are that you will avoid those crowds. It is much quicker to shop online, and it helps you to avoid buying unnecessary items.

4. Use your cell phone to shop there are great apps such as RetailMeNot that will provide you with coupons and discount codes to use in store and online. You can pull your phone out in store and have the cashier scan your phone so that you will save money without having to take around paper coupons. Searching items on Ebates and it will tell you where to find the things at with the lowest price.

5. Always shop clearance racks first. If you go to the clearance racks, you will find the off-season items along with the new markdowns for the current season. If you find coats or jeans, you should buy them a size or two more significant, than your child’s current size can hold onto them for the winter. They can also be saved for the next winter if they are just entirely too big.

6. Make a budget that you will stay on track. Don’t overspend on items make sure you are comparing the prices before making purchases. My daughter wants some $190 Nike sneakers which she will not be getting. I have found some shoe sites that are offering Buy one, Get one on shoes. I gave my daughter the places to look at so she can choose what shoes she wanted.

Thanks for reading my post. I hope you were able to take away some Tips on Shopping for Back to School Clothes.

How to get Reduced price on EpiPen?

 

My daughter and I have horrible allergies. My daughter has a peanut and shellfish allergy and its gotten to be difficult for us to keep EpiPen handy. It’s difficult because she is involved in some many different things that she would need one with her at all times. I have always had allergies as a child but the older I have got the worst it has become. I recently found myself having an allergy test done. I had the allergy test done because I had a allergic reaction to something and could not figure out what it was. I found out I was allergic to some things that I come in contact with quite frequently.

After getting the results of the test, I realized that it is now imperative to keep my EpiPen with me at all times as well as for my daughter. I would typically leave it home for a reason such as it won’t fit in my purse, I’m not going to need it or just thinking of any reason not to carry it around with me.

If you or your kids have allergies, then you know that the cost is exceptionally high for EpiPen. Just knowing the price of the EpiPen, you can willingly forget to take one with you. But having to purchase one for my daughter now and myself my pockets are screaming for help. I know I have to buy it, but still, I’m just thinking like can the price be discounted or two for one since I have to buy for two people. But of course that’s not an option, its all or nothing at all. Looking at the box and realizing they expire in one year. What if we don’t use them? I’ll be wasting my money. Can I take them back and exchange them in a year? Those are all the things that came to my mind when I was given the price of the EpiPens.

Then to find out that my insurance only covers the generic and that was still over a $100. I ask the Pharmacist for the price for the brand. I compare the two of them and think that the prices are both to high. When the Pharmacist realize that its two people in my household needing the EpiPens he gives me this advice on how to get it for a reduced price up to $300 dollars off or possibly free. Of course, I’m all about saving money, so I listen to what he says.

Follow these steps for a discounted price to reduce your out of pocket cost for a EpiPen:

1. Go to the website and fill out the form. Make sure you read the Terms and Conditions.

2. Print your Co-Pay Offer Card from Mylan(the maker of EpiPen)

3. Verify that your prescription is written for EpiPen.

4. Take your prescription and your co-pay card to your pharmacy to receive your EpiPen two pack.

Hold on to your card you can use it up to six times in a year with a valid prescription. 

Thanks to my Pharmacist I was advised of how to get the EpiPens for FREE!
YES, I Stated FREE EpiPens!!!

Who knew a Dollar could be so Sweet?

When was the last time you walked into Dollar Tree? I walked into Dollar Tree and was so shocked by all the items that they sell. They have currently expanded there store and added so much more to there shelves. Walking into a Dollar Tree and seeing a freezer with a variety of frozen foods, then seeing several shelves with food items from can goods, condiments, quick and easy meals, snacks, candy and so much more. They have name brand food items such as Kraft, Old El Paso, Oreos, Domino, and others.

As I walk the aisles in Dollar Tree, I receive a text message asking me to make a cake. Of course, I text back yes because I love to bake. I also ask when you need and what kind. I’m waiting to get a reply back, and it finally comes in I need it Friday if possible and how about trying that Lemon Blueberry Cake. I excitedly reply right back Friday is plenty of time even though its a day notice.

I had never made a Lemon Blueberry Cake, so this was something new to me. I’m always up for a challenge I then proceed to pull up the recipe. I look at the recipe I realize I don’t have all the ingredients at my house. I did not want to go to the grocery store so I look at the food section and I was able to find all the items I would need for the cake. I walk to the front of the store to get a basket and go back to the food section to start picking up the items I need. All ingredients for the cake can be purchased at Dollar Tree.

For my cake, I purchased the majority of the items at Dollar Tree some I did not buy there because I knew I did not have them at home. But all ingredients are at the Dollar Tree. Even if by chance the store doesn’t have an item other items can be substituted in its place. 

How to Make Lemon Blueberry Cake

Ingredients

• 2 Eggs

• 1 Cup Granulated Sugar

• 1 Cup Sour Cream (8oz)

• 1/2 Cup Light Olive Oil or Vegetable Oil

• Powdered Sugar to dust the top optional

Instructions Prep:

1. Lightly butter a 9-inch Springform or Bundt pan and line the bottom with parchment. Preheat Oven to 375˚F.

How to Make Lemon Blueberry Cake:

1. Beat 2 eggs and 1 cup sugar with whisk attachment on high speed 5 min, or until light in color and thick.

2. Add 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup oil, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp salt and whisk on low speed until well combined.

3. Whisk together the 2 cups flour with 2 tsp baking powder then add to batter 1/3 at a time, whisking to incorporate with each addition (DO NOT OVERMIX). Finally, add 1 Tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 Tbsp zest.

4. Rinse blueberries and drain well. In a medium bowl, toss blueberries with 1/2 Tbsp corn starch and 1 tsp lemon juice, stirring until well combined and no dry white cornstarch remains.

5. Pour half of batter into prepared springform pan and spread evenly. Top with half of the blueberries. Spread with remaining batter then sprinkle the rest of the blueberries evenly over the top, pushing them slightly into the batter (about halfway). Bake at 375˚F for 45 to 55 min (mine was perfect at 55 min), or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cake rest in the pan 15-20 min then remove ring and cool until room temp or just warm. Serve dusted with powdered sugar.

Substitutes:
• 2 Tsp Baking Powder= 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda plus 1 C Buttermilk or Yogurt

Deal of the Day

Here is a Deal that you can’t refuse.

BLACK+DECKER Purify 2-Liter Air Fryer, Black/Stainless Steel, HF110SBD

Is it really worth the hype? Yes, it is worth all the hype and more.

1. It’s a healthier alternative to traditional fried foods. If you are looking to give up fried foods then the air fryer is the best choice for you. The air fryer will give you that fried taste minus all the grease.

2. The air fryer is easy to clean up after being used. You can remove the parts of the air fryer and even place them in the dishwasher if you prefer to wash them that way.

3. Multiple usages: fry, grill, roast or bake
Air Fry frozen foods such as French fries, onion rings or chicken nuggets
Air Grill vegetables or seafood
Air Roast any meats or vegetables
Air Bake muffins, cupcakes, brownies or bread

You have heard about all the hype, now what’s the downside? I’m glad you asked I’ll be happy to fill you in.

1. It takes longer to cook with an air fryer you can normally cook French fries in 10 minutes in a deep fryer. But not with the air fryer it would take 20 minutes for them to cook.

2. If you have a large family then you will have to cook the food in different batches cause it is so small you would not be able to cook for a large family all at once.

The air fryer is definitely worth the hype to buy. It is a kitchen appliance that I highly suggest everyone invest in. I love fried foods but I also had to give them up so when I purchased the air fryer I have been able to indulge in a healthier version of fried foods. Of course, it has been trial and error with the air fryer but over time I have become very satisfied with the end results of using the air fryer.
