“Send your kids back to school in style by shopping savvy and smart!” Jessica Miller, Fifi’s owner and manager exclaimed. “Even during tough economic times, people still enjoy shopping. Fifi’s offers you the opportunity to find great items at better than retail prices. Here are some tips on how to shop sensibly, as compiled by the National Association of Resale and Thrift Stores,” Miller continued.

    -Make a list before you go shopping. It will keep you on track and save you from impulse buying.
    -Do an inventory of what you have so you can build on it by looking for coordinating pieces.
    -This is also a good time to recycle clothing your child has outgrown by selling or consigning it at your favorite resale shop, giving you cash to spend on this year’s clothes.
    -Involve your children in the back-to-school budget and teach them to comparison shop. Help them identify their wants and needs then ask which items they consider ‘essential.’ Show them how they can do their part in recycling by giving clothes a second life.
    -Play stylist with your children by trying to create as many looks as possible with a few pieces. Many outfit combinations can be created by layering.
    -Get started early and visit your favorite resale shops often as new things come in every day.
    -Shop during the state sales tax holiday, if your state has one. In some state’s, the tax holiday coincides with back to school shopping time.
    -You do not have to buy everything at once. A few new outfits will get your children started and gives them time to access the trends. You can add during the year as you discover great new bargains at your favorite resale shop.
    -Shop at resale, thrift and consignment stores for clothes and accessories. Remember, always look for the NARTS decal. It is Your Assurance of Resale Professionalism.
