Where To Find Back-To-School Clothing Deals

Kids heading back-to-school? Find out where to find the best back-to-school clothing deals online. There are tons of stores and items in the list.

For more help getting ready for the school year, check out all of our back-to-school posts.

It’s crazy to me that it’s back-to-school time already. The teachers here went back a couple weeks ago and kids are following close behind. So that means dressing your kids and finding back-to-school clothing deals.

Part of my favorite thing the new school year was back-to-school shopping. We were able to pick out an outfit for the first day, new shoes for the year, and then a few new tops and bottoms. Are your kids excited about that too?

It’s so different now than when I was in school. See, then, we went to the mall and had a great time going from store to store, looking for deals and checking out the clearance racks. Now, you can just shop online and find a lot of great deals.

And to help you, I’ve put together a list of all the best deals I’ve found on back-to-school clothes. Yup, this is basically your online mall, your one stop shopping for back-to-school-clothing deals.

This list will be changing as stores update their back to school clothing sales. And, keep in mind, many of the deals are for a limited time only, so if you see something you love, you better grab it.

To help you a little more, we have a great list of Back to School Tips. It’s filled with posts about Disney Lunch Boxes, a printable back to school morning routine, tips for using stickers to labels your kids items (like water bottles, lunch bags, gym shoes, etc.), and more.

Tips For Back To School Clothing Shopping

  • Start by looking in your child’s closet, packing away anything that doesn’t fit or isn’t appropriate for school (like items with big holes). That’s a great way to see how much your child actually has to wear that fits, and you’ll know what items you need to buy for back to school.
  • When you’re shopping, add some cute items to your cart along with some practical ones. Tank tops that can be worn alone at the warm beginning and end of the school year, and then layered during the cooler months, will help you stretch your budget since your child can wear them all year.
  • Buying one pair of high end sneakers now, which will last all year, is a better use of your money than buying a cheap pair now and having to replace it later in the year.
  • If you’re shopping in store, look at the clearance racks. Stores usually put the current season on clearance to make room for the next season. So it’s the perfect time to find a good deal on items that your child can wear now.

To make your back to school shopping a little easier, we picked out favorite boy and girl item from each store and linked you to those directly. Of course, you don’t have to buy the ones we like (we’ll never know), but I thought it gave you a good starting point for items to look at. If you just open a website and try to shop without any direction, it can be super overwhelming.

The summer went so fast. These are great tips! Thank you for sharing this post.

Back to School season is definitely an opportunity. When my adult children were in school, I remember I had to save 15.00 from each paycheck for my "back to school' savings. I was paid weekly and this was how I had to save to have enough for supplies and clothes. I had a savings account for many occasions, BTS, Christmas, Birthdays and others!!

Great money saving tips! We happened to luck out onto a huge sale at Old Navy when we went shopping last week and it turned out to be tax free weekend too.

What an impressive list you have here. Yes BTS online shopping has grown and makes it so much easier for all.
