You guys know me as someone who is all about living a life that is as frugal as it can be, but still being able to enjoy life as well. With such a large family to feed, clothe, and care for, every penny certainly counts.
You may also know me as someone who LOVES to shop online. I am so much more willing to shop from the comfort of my home than I am to drag myself and a kid or two or eight to the mall to get what we need.
As much as I wish it weren’t this time of the year, it is back to school time, which means that it is also time for back to school shopping.
If your kids are like mine, they are all about looking their best whether they are sitting in the classroom or squeezing every last drop out of the summer while running through the sprinkler in the yard on those few remaining hot days of summer weather. This means they need a few back to school times to freshen up their wardrobe.
I am so excited to share how I did ALL of my back to school shopping this year because it combines my two favorite things – saving money and shopping from my couch. I most likely even did some of this shopping in my pajamas…what could be better?
On this back to school shopping spree I spent $300 at Kohl’s.com, and not only did I score some amazing deals but I also earned 6% back (that’s an extra $18 for doing what I was doing anyway – shopping at Kohl’s.com!)
How did I do this?
I used Ebates, and it’s the BEST way to do your back to school shopping ever!
