The best time to shop for college might shock you.

With many graduating seniors already having chosen a college they will spend the #nextfour, they are eager to start cruising Target and Walmart for their college essentials. With the end of the school year approaching, experts say that the best time to shop is late summer.

“Back-to-school supplies will abound in August. If you wait until just before school begins, though, you’ll likely be able to find steep discounts. Just keep in mind that selections of products may be more limited as inventories get picked over,” said Courtney Jesperson for USA Today.

However, just because one can shop in August, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t take advantage of any great deals that may become available prior to the late summer.
