These apps and websites can make your back-to-school shopping a little easier

School is just around the corner, and that means it is time for back-to-school shopping.

While this can be an expensive endeavor, there are ways to save.

Consignment shops, for example, can be a great place to go to get designer clothes for much less than at the mall.

Shopping around is always a good idea, but it can take a lot of time.

With that in mind, there are websites and apps for your smartphone that can help.

Shopular is an app that can send you deals for the store you just walked into. You can get Shopular here.

Favado is another app for your smartphone that will compare prices locally for you, without you having to visit every store. You can grab the Favado app here.

Don't let the name CincyShopper fool you: Most deals are nationwide. This website helps guide you to great deals at stores around the country.
