Save Money On BacktoSchool
The summer holidays are ending and the school year is about to start. While some parents may feel a twinge of relief at finally getting the chance to ship the kids off back to school, there are others who will be feeling under pressure, as they realise that they haven’t yet gotten their kids organised for the year ahead.
For these parents, there will be a sudden rush to find everything on the school booklist so that the kids can ‘start’ their holiday homework. There will also be a strong sense of frustration, as they realise that 6-8 weeks have gone by and there was still not enough time to get all the uniforms in check and the school books sorted.
As the school holidays draw to a close, you’re likely to see more and more of these harried adults stalking around stores, clutching coloured school-list papers to their chests and snapping at any of their children who dares to utter a word. While the organised amongst us may smirk, or even feel pity for our less-collected brethren , there’s no denying that the expenses generated for the ‘back to school’ season can be a financial burden on us all- organised or not.
