School starts back in only a few weeks. Are you ready yet? Here's a few tips to help you save money while gathering the items on your teachers list.

Stick to the list

You already need to buy a ton of stuff to get the year started off and will probably need other items throughout, so only buy what's needed to start with. 

Shop end of the season sales

A lot of clothes can be worn in the summer and fall, plus in winter with a sweater or jacket. Find items that you can layer and use throughout the year on the clearance racks.

Avoid fads and trendy supplies

The latest thing usually costs more and will probably go out of style quickly. Stick to basic items when it come to pencils, books and other typical supplies.

Plan to swap supplies

You buy the pencils, while your friend buys the markers and then divide the supplies. You can also swap items such as books and toys. Dividing the costs can be much more affordable.

Use coupons, rewards and apps to save some money

You can find coupons in your local paper, online and through a variety of apps. Research before you go shopping and you may be able to save a bundle.



Having worked with the Children's Miracle Network of Central Virginia for over 15 years, it's always wonderful to see news of how Beacon's support benefits the community. 

Recently, Children's Miracle Network announced they are purchasing 4 brand new NICU pods for Virginia Baptist hospital. These pods will be used to treat babies who're born with substance addictions. Larry Lilley, NICU manager at Virginia Baptist stated that up to 35% of babies in the neonatal intensive care unit are born addicted to drugs.
