FFTC’s Guide to School Clothes Shopping on a Budget

School clothes shopping sends shivers up my spine. I just spent over $100 buying school supplies for my kids.  And we didn’t even get everything on the list. Who knew that notebooks and crayons could add up so quickly.  Our cart was full, but it wasn’t overflowing.

With the school supplies purchased and ready to go, it’s time to consider school clothes shopping. After spending so much on folders and pencils, we really gotta be careful and stick to our budget. There are some great alternatives to the mall, department stores or even Target that can help you keep the prices down.

The Best Guidebooks for Twin Cities Families

Once upon a time, in order to find fun things to do around the Twin Cities, I would frequent the library, explore guidebooks and newspapers, and sometimes just get lucky. While I love the ease of the internet, I still love to pick these books up at the library periodically.

The Best Guidebooks for Twin Cities Families

Nothing quite compares to the joy of reading guidebooks – especially with kids. There is just something magical about sitting together on the couch, flipping through the full color pages and picking our next activity. When you own the guide, you can even use it like a checklist and a journal, working your way down the list, writing notes, and maybe even tucking memorabilia into the pages. (If you choose to borrow the book from the library, you might want to pick up a journal or photo album for this purpose.)

From the quirky to the classic, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite guides to the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.

Twin Cities Special Needs ShortList

Special Needs

Families with Special Needs are our HEROES! We have always thought that. After attending AUSM’s Steps of Hope event in 2016, we knew that we needed to up our game to serve our heroes even better.

We decided to make this Special Needs ShortList as a launching point.  This guide is for families in the midst of crisis–or friends of those families– who need a place to start.  This is our first step, our first attempt.  Feedback and suggestions are very welcomed.


The Special Needs ShortList is sponsored by the Autism Society of Minnesota.
