Money in a Minute: Big sales on school supplies begin in July

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - You may not want to think about back to school shopping, but waiting until August could cost you.

If you have kids, then right now you might want to get ready to go shopping.  Jenny Martin from Southernsavers.com says that the middle of July is a great time to go back to school shopping.  It doesn't matter if you have a supply list , chances are you can start getting some of the basics right now.

"We're going to see huge deals and it will keep running until school starts," said Martin.

Also, if you want to save yourself some time and gas money, then collect the ads from the newspaper and go to Walmart or Target to try to price match them.  If you get into an issue where you have too many school supplies, consider donating them to a supply drive.  There are always kids who need them.
