Ten tips for saving money during the back-to-school season

My son said the other day mom I'll be going back to school soon. I love spending all day with you. I replied so, do I. We really enjoy each others company but, I love the criteria and the education he's getting from school. I usually do my shopping at Staples for great savings especially, when items are sold for pennies on the dollar I buy for the entire school year not just the beginning.
Did you know that Staples is helping those disadvantaged and without an opportunity for school supplies? The 3rd Annual Staples Do Something 101 School Supply Drive is underway. The first two Annuals raised nearly one million for charities and Staples is prepared to help again! I think that's great community responsibility!

Not only that, Staples is offering a special discount to us TwitterMoms by printing out the coupon here to get 25% off select merchandise.
