Sweater Heart Pillows


Over the next few weeks, students of all ages will be returning to school. Whether you are enrolled in grad school or your little one is heading off to kindergarten, thrift shopping for your back-to-school needs is the best way to stick to a budget and prepare yourself for the year ahead.

In the world of back-to-school shopping, there are sweaters and lunch boxes, and then there are couches and foosball tables. In college, students finally have the freedom to furnish their own space. They work hard on papers and focus fastidiously during lectures, so in their downtime they deserve to relax and enjoy themselves with some slightly frivolous purchases. The big problem for college students, though, is funding: being newly independent means being suddenly (and shockingly) aware of your living expenses. That’s why Goodwill is a college student’s best friend – low prices for everything an undergrad could possibly need.

Good luck to anyone heading back to school this fall, no matter your age or grade level. May your year pass by with minimal stress and just the right amount of challenge to help you grow. You can do it!
