Don't forget The Deal Diva's Back-to school shopping tips!

1. Buy extra. This is the best time to buy paper, pens, pencils, backpacks and notebooks. Students will need to replenish their supplies throughout the year so buy now.

2. Stick to the list. Schools have posted the list of needed supplies; don’t buy items not on the list.

3. Start now! Buy a little each week. Waiting to the last minute will end in disaster and you standing at Wal-Mart at 11:35pm searching for red pens.

4. Use the reward sites for the office supply stores – they have coupons and ways to get rewarded for spending money.
