I may have mentioned this before, but I’m a teacher. Teachers have to be very creative in finding ways to purchase classroom supplies.
The federal government reinstated for the 2014 tax year the tax credit for the first $250 in educator supply expenses, which is nice; don’t get me wrong. Especially since it was nonexistent the previous year. Our district gives us $100 for supplies, as well; again, this is nice. But both are after-expenditure “rebates,” as you will.
With Muffin starting school this year, with all of his fees staring us in the face, a bit of alleviation of the upfront expenditures would be nice.
I’ve been collecting Swagbucks like a boss lately, trying to get 100 a day and meet the daily goal. I came up with the idea of creating a supply replenishment list for next year. I will buy Amazon gift cards, and, for the items of reasonable price, I will order them from Amazon–with the gift cards!
As July approaches, I will do the same thing with Walmart gift cards–for the back-to-school supply deals.
