      Digging for school clothing deals

      A recent survey says that 67 percent of parents in America plan to spend more than $100 per child on back-to-school shopping. Back-to-school clothing is always at the forefront of that shopping. So how can you get the most from your dollars?

      Clothing can be expensive. Fashions come and go, but bargains are always in. You have the option of shopping the big chains for brand new items, or you can choose the gently worn at secondhand stores. There are even articles of clothing at secondhand stores that have never been worn.

      Goodwill Store Manager Sarah Cantrell says deep discount sales are always on at her store located off US-2 in Escanaba. She says, "We have five different colors and they rotate every week. This week is pink and it's 50 percent off. Next week, it'll be a new color. That color will be 50 percent off. And everything has its tag."

      The store has a wide selection of pants, jeans, blouses and accessories for boys, girls, men and women. Winter coats can also be found.

      The merchandise is in good to excellent condition. So, you don't have to have a financial setback for your kids to look great for the upcoming school year.
