The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Back To School Shopping

Back to school shopping is fun, but who wants to drop a pretty penny on school supplies when there is plenty of ice cream to eat, movies to see, and new gadgets to save up for? Don’t empty out that piggy bank just yet, Lazy Girl. We’ve got 10 easy tips that will get you out of the department store and back to school without moving an inch or dropping a dime.

Art Supplies

Get Creative. You’ve got lipstick and nail polish, right? Then you’ve got crayons and paint! You’re art teacher will be so pleased you’re thinking outside of the box.

Save The Trees

Your leftover lunch napkins make a perfectly good notepad.

The Infamous P.E.

Who wants to carry around gym clothes all day? Turn your outfit inside out. Get dirty out on the field and when you’re done you’ll be spotless—on the outside.

Your Homecoming Makeover

Instead of new clothes wear your old junior high school uniform every day. Tell your friends you’re going for that vintage Britney Spears look.

Why Buy When You Can Reuse?

Instead of buying a new notebook, pull out your old diary or composition book and use the backs of those pages.

Writing Tools

Don’t waste your time with pens, Lazy Girl. Pull that eyeliner pencil out of your bag and get to writing with that.

Compute This!

Need a calculator? Use your mom’s tired old flip phone—that’s basically all it’s good for now anyway.

Get Your Graph On

Your math teacher wants you to buy graph paper? For what? Steal your dad’s checkered oxford. It’s basically graph paper made of cotton. Plus it’s eco-friendly. Rinse and reuse.

Keep It Edgy

Get hipster chic and a rock a hobo bag. Grab a branch and tie a scarf around the end. Irony is the new black.

Those Text Books Keep Getting Bigger

Who needs a backpack when you’ve got plenty of grocery shopping bags left over?
