Parents everywhere are thrilled that their kids are back to school; well most of them. Going back to school shopping can be an expensive nightmare but it doesn’t have to be … I love saving as much as possible!
Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.
Lower income or not, single-parent or not, why wouldn’t you want to spend less? While I love to be able to get more for my money, I do like to purchase good, quality items. How? It’s simple; I visit my local Giant Tiger. [find out here your local store is] Giant Tiger meets our lifestyle needs. If you’ve been to Giant Tiger years ago but not so much in the past few years, you’ll be surprised at how it’s changed. Giant Tiger focused on changing in the areas that it needed to: more stores (especially in the big cities), reduced clutter in the aisles, wider aisles for easier access, and quality throughout. Giant Tiger kept what it needed to keep: savings, small-store feel (which means warm welcome), and a little of everything you need.
I recently took my daughter on a back-to-school shopping trip to Giant Tiger. Not only is she going back to school, she’s actually off to College for the first time. You may have seen video/pictures that I shared on social media? Even though we can find some amazing deals, I still gave my daughter a budget of $100 for clothing. She may have gone a little over the budget, I just couldn’t resist her face as it lit up! She especially loved all of the cardigans; she couldn’t get enough! I think we purchased 4 of them. Or was it 5?
Giant Tiger has been around since 1961 and I have been a GT customer since 1980. I can tell you how much I have loved shopping at Giant Tiger, and how much I still do, but I think it best you find out for yourself why. I think you’ll be surprised with the quality and the price.
HINT: If you join the GT email club, you’ll receive a $5 off coupon too!
These brands are only a few of what you’ll find at Giant Tiger:
- lily morgan
- ACX Active
… these brands offer a great selection for my daughter to pick from. She’s quite particular and she was impressed with her selections! Now, as an adult, she appreciates giant savings and is already saying “Mom, take me to Giant Tiger again, there are several items that I didn’t buy but I should have.” Next time around I’ll remind her that she has a part-time job and can chip into her shopping fund.
