It's Your Money: Saving on School Shopping


With gas prices so high, no one wants to drive from store to store looking for back to school clothes.

In our It's Your Money report, Greg Jeschke shows us how to outfit the entire family - kids and parents - with one-stop shopping.

Getting the kids ready for the first day of school is hectic for all families. But there are solutions.

The Good Housekeeping Institute used a photo shoot to showcase looks you can find in just one store, for kids and adults.

One top spot is The Gap. Good Housekeeping found some great deals, and picked up some very durable clothes for active two-year-olds, and for mom too.

Another family tried Kohl's and found great looks for the whole family for under $365.

Good Housekeeping suggests waiting until October or November to buy most of your child's school clothing; that's when most of the sales are on.

And don't buy the cheapest off-the-rack-sneakers for your child. It's better to pay a little extra for leather sneakers with a flexible sole, because they'll last longer and fit better.
