Las Vegas Mom Offers Tips to Save on Back to School Shopping

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Back to school shopping can weigh heavy on your wallets but what if you could do it all this year for $10? It's not a dream, one local mom wants to show you how to save big.

Jennifer Freeman converts her kitchen into a place of combat as she wages her war to save money on school shopping. She scours coupons for deals.

"It's a war room against spending too much money," said Freeman who started the website tipresource.com. For 18 years, she's honed her skills looking for the best bargains. She claims to save about $10,000 a year. 

"What my focus is just to help people feel better about today with maybe not having as much money as they did last month or last year," she said.

"With the current economy, especially here in Vegas every dollar counts," said Mike Freeman, Jennifer's husband.

With kids headed back to the classroom in a few weeks, school supplies can be costly for families on a tight budget.

Freeman's website maps out what stores are having sales and even gives links to online coupons. Places like Office Depot, Office Max, Target and Walgrens are already offering back to school deals.

"Realistically you can get $100 worth of supplies for $10," said Freeman. She says it's a good idea to take advantage of the deep discounts offered right now and stock up with what you need.

"Think further into the year, think maybe buying a little extra so you can donate to the teachers or donate to the kids who maybe don't have the extra money right now," said Freeman.

What started as a hobby has now evolved into a passion to help southern Nevadans save money.

"There is hope in this difficult time with our finances."
