Not only are the prices great but when you factor in the amount of time and gas you save by not driving around to different stores, you really do come out ahead. Plus, it's hard to beat the convenience of shopping from home, 24 hours a day.

Bellacor, the largest online retailer of lighting and home accessories, shares a few timely back-to-school shopping tips and offers money-saving opportunities for parents and students.
Back-to-school buying season has returned once again. To help make shopping less hectic and more affordable, Bellacor offers a fast, easy and affordable alternative to prowling the malls. Parents and kids of all ages can start checking things off their list without ever leaving home.
Time is scarce in most families these days, especially as summer comes to an end. On top of being busy with jobs and errands, fall brings on more chores and outdoor activities. It's easy enough to pick up small school supplies on your way home from work or the grocery store. But when you need to upgrade your student's study area, furnish a dorm room or college apartment, it takes time to find the right things and at the right price. Bellacor's online shopping convenience, savings and selection can help families and students get the school year off right.
For instance, in choosing a desk lamp, Chris Fowler, senior marketing manager for Bellacor, points out the importance of picking the right lighting for the task: "If you're doing a lot of reading, you'll want to consider halogen. It's a much brighter, white light that's easier on your eyes. And if you mostly work on a computer, be sure to get a lamp with an adjustable arm so you can direct light where you need it and away from the computer screen."
To make sure you find the lamp that fits your specific needs, Bellacor carries a huge selection of styles and types of lighting, all at affordable prices. And if you're setting up a study area, moving into a dorm or college apartment, Bellacor also has a large selection of needed furniture and accessories: bookcases and storage units; stylish, modular furniture; compact computer desks; contemporary décor; bedding; and more.
For those working within a budget, these initial expenses can add up. Fowler suggests that parents and college-bound students who are looking for ways to save money and get real value, shop online at Bellacor. "Not only are the prices great but when you factor in the amount of time and gas you save by not driving around to different stores, you really do come out ahead. Plus, it's hard to beat the convenience of shopping from home, 24 hours a day."
And, shopping online also means saving the expense of hiring a truck because Bellacor will deliver directly to the student's new address. Especially when it comes to bulky furniture, parents, family and friends will appreciate being spared the pain and hassle of moving day. But best of all, Bellacor will ship your purchases for free within the continental U.S. With free shipping, direct to your new destination, you'll be ready to start the new school year, and with few extra dollars in your pocket.
Cited as one of the top 50 web retail sites by Internet Retailer, Bellacor offers the largest collection of lighting and home furnishings online, with access to over 500,000 products from 700 manufacturers.
