Preparing Your Child for Preschool: Shopping Tips

If you are like me, you may regularly be on the lookout for educational toys or other educational resources, like preschool workbooks or preschool reading books. If you use the internet, I have a few tips that may help you save money.

For starters, you may want to look into joining MyPoints. The website is located at www.mypoints.com. This is a program that enables you to earn points every time that you shop with particular retailers. Just a few of the retailers include Toys R Us, Overstock, and Barnes and Nobles. Your points can later be converted to gift cards. I love this program. I have received gift cards to K-Mart, Old Navy, and Barnes and Nobles.

Speaking of Barnes and Nobles, they are a great place to get preschool workbooks and preschool reading books from. For a small fee, $25 I believe, you can get discounted prices on all of their products. This adds up overtime. They also have free shipping when you send $25 or more.

I also use Overstock to shop for preschool workbooks, preschool reading books, as well as DVDs. They have great prices and normally a large selection of workbooks, movies, and books. They are also known for their low shipping fees, which can range anywhere from free to less than $3 and that is usually for your whole order!
