Back-to-School in Flower Mound

Is it that time of year again already?

The students of Flower Mound have had their rest, and now it’s time for them to head back-to-school (much to the rejoicing of parents). The 2017 school year begins on the 28th across the district, and it’s time to get organized for a stress-free start.

You might still have a lot to do. There are gadgets, school supplies, and clothes to shop for. And don’t forget the coordination of schedules, athletics, and doctor’s appointments. Where does a busy parent start?

I’ve gathered a few handy lists to help the families of Flower Mound get Back-to-School with as little stress as possible.

Back-to-School Shopping

Shopping cart for back to school shopping

While back-to-school shopping can be exciting (I personally love notebooks and pens), it can be tough to know where the best place is to do your shopping. The answer is – it depends. Many department stores will attempt to bring in shoppers with low-cost items as loss-leaders, such as paper or pencils, while keeping prices up on high-ticket items that might be purchased purely out of convenience.

To that end, I’ve done a little comparison shopping in and around Flower Mound from the stores below to find out where the best price can be found on those big-ticket items to help you save some real money.

While in-store prices are usually consistent (or even lower if there’s a sale) than online prices, I would recommend checking the store’s page before committing to something big like a Chromebook.


Walmart 3020 Justin Rd, Highland Village, TX 75077

My recommendation is to order online and pickup in person. Wal-Mart’s online prices for a few of these big ticket items is higher in the store than if you order it ahead online, and they have already-loaded local school supply lists for easy ordering. Shop smart!
