Parents who see their pockets emptying quickly when they start reviewing long lists of essential classroom supplies know firsthand the difficulties of back-to-school shopping. To help parents in their new school year shopping, eReflect shares a mini guide on how to make the most out of their money when shopping this school year.
eReflect, developer of one of the best typing programs, Ultimate Typing™, explains these shopping strategies in a blog post titled, “Spend Money Wisely When You Shop For Your Child’s Back To School Items.” The company emphasizes that smart shopping is the key.
One tip shared by eReflect writers is to shop critically. Supplies like pens, notebooks, and crayons don’t need to be high-end brands. On the other hand, parents should invest in an ergonomic backpack and in high quality, comfortable clothing. As a rule of thumb, items that relate to a child’s health, like a backpack and sneakers, need to be of the highest possible quality to last longer.
The eReflect writers also recommend using budget apps and other online shopping tools when shopping for school supplies to get the best possible value for money. Shopping from a variety of stores, both online and brick and mortar, ensures parents get the best school supplies for their children, and at reasonable prices, too.
Having a bit of extra money available to spend is essential, because as often is the case, there are last-minute school supplies parents can't account for. eReflect counsels parents to contact schools to make sure they have the most up to date list of supplies before starting the shopping process.
Typing tutors like Ultimate Typing™ come under the category of supplies that can help children in multiple ways, and are therefor one of the most essential school supplies parents should consider for their children. The central role of keyboarding skills in nearly every aspect of school life has become even more evident in view of the new Common Core Standards. This means that when a child needs to learn to type software could help them keep up with keyboard-based activities and assignments for the remainder of their school years.
