RetailMeNot's Sara Skirboll shares her tips and tricks so you don't have to break the bank.

Back-to-school shopping season is nearly upon us, so Inside Edition has teamed up with RetailMeNot for tips and tricks to save time and money when shopping.

"Let's start with outfit essentials. The hottest trends for fall this year are going to be prints, polka dots and plaids," said Sara Skirboll, RetailMeNot’s shopping and trends expert.

"Go to Macy’s where you can get everything under the sun. If you have the free RetailMeNot app downloaded, you’re going to get up to $20 cash back."

And what good is that backpack if it's not stocked with school supplies?

"CVS has deals on notebooks, pens, markers and more," Skirboll said. "The best part? If you shop online, you can get up to $15 cash back."

Skirboll recommends going to Best Buy where you can get all of the best prices on everything from calculators to computers.

"And before you start shopping, make sure to go to or download the free app to save on everything from backpacks to supplies, high tech electronics and even dorm room decor.”
