In case you missed watching King 5 yesterday morning or during the 12pm show,  you can watch one of the  segments online at We had 4 different segments throughout the morning. I was talking with Christie Johnson from the King 5 Morning Show about ways to save on back-to-school shopping.   We were at my local Fred Meyer store  in Puyallup.

Even though many of you may have finished a lot of your school supply shopping, we talked about ways to save on those last-minute school supply items you still might need as well as taking advantage of the awesome sales going on at the mall & online this weekend.  We will be heading out this weekend to take advantage of the clothing sales as it’s a great opportunity to buy for the fall but also for upcoming seasons when you combine the sales with the additional store coupons & discounts you’ll find this weekend. And keep your eye out for those clearance sales as you can often use your coupons on clearance items as well!

A quick tip – if you’re still needing a backpack for your child for school, my local Fred Meyer still had a pretty good selection on backpacks & they were one of the best prices I’ve seen in my local stores this week with select backpacks for just $9.99 (price-blaster item). They had other backpacks for around $14.99, too. (Just an FYI – I mentioned that you could use the Fred Meyer 10% Bonus Coupon on price-blasters, but price-blasters are excluded from the bonus coupons. I didn’t realize I said it until I watched the clip last night.)
