Whether you're a student, a parent of a student or a teacher, you probably have to do some back-to-school shopping. In the current economic climate, many people can't afford to blow their budget on clothes. So it's important to make a little go a long way. Before you step foot in the stores, consider these super saving tips. Take stock of what you need. For children, assess their wardrobes from head to toe. Keep in mind socks, undergarments, shoes and other essentials. Do the same for yourself. Don't be afraid to refurbish. Can jeans become jean shorts? Can rips or tears be covered with cool patches or pretty paint? Can skirts be lengthened? Keep in mind one person's trash is another person's treasure. Before you part with last year's duds, consult with other moms and see who would be up for a clothing swap.
