Think of back-to-school season like it's a holiday season. For example, the days after Halloween, you'll see some of the biggest discounts on costumes and candy. The same goes for school clothing. The best prices will come in September, after most schools are back in session.

However, if your kids are set on having new back-to-school outfits now, The Krazy Coupon Lady has some amazing insider tips on how to save! I highlighted some of the tips in the article below, but you'll want to click here to get all the details.

In addition to having a budget, aim for 40 percent off at stores, and shop on Tuesdays and Fridays. Apparently, clearance markdowns most frequently start on Tuesdays when foot traffic is slow.

Did you know there are secret tag codes? When you look at the price tags in different stores, it clues you in to whether an item is on final sale or might be discounted more later.

Stack coupons when shopping online to save more.

Ebates and MyPoints offer additional cash back on every purchase. Or, the Ibotta app allows you to get credited some cash when you take a picture of a receipt.

There are ways to not pay for shipping, some retailers will price match, and you can request price adjustments to save after your purchase.
