Tips to save with Back to School Stationery

Tips to save with Back to School Stationery

There are a number of ways you can really save a great deal of money on your kids back to school stationery each year and the tips below will help you get started.

Most schools give out a stationery list at the end of the year for all the grades in the school. These lists have all the stationery items the children will need for the New Year. A good tip is to see if there are any stationery items on the list that your child may need for a few years in a row. For example - younger grades will use items like black board marker pens, wax crayons and koki pens for a few years whilst they are in the foundation phase of their schooling career. If you keep an eye out for bulk deals that offer big discounts on some back to school stationery supplies and these items are on sale, buy a few of them and keep them in a safe place until next year. You will beat inflation by purchasing the stationery long before the time and many stationery items will not spoil if you keep them unopened for a few years.

If your children are older and you know they need to send items such as paper and cardboard every year, many stationery suppliers offer large discounts if these items are purchased in bulk. You can split the costs of these items amongst a few of your child's class mates or keep a supply for the next year.

Special deals on back to school stationery items are not always cheaper at the beginning of each school year. Tissues, toilet paper and soap are not exactly stationery items but many schools request that children supply these to the school. These items are regularly on special during the year, so keep a watchful eye for them which will add to your savings.
