  • Get together all the catalogues, work out the best price at each store and make a list of what you are going to buy from where.

  • With 3 at school I’ve found buying a few things in bulk everyweek from the booklist helped plus recycling last years calculators etc saved $300!!

  • be prepared and start buying stationery, uniforms earlier a little each week and then you are not up for all the cost at one time.

  • Not buying packaged food rather than buying larger products and placing in containers! Good eco tip too!

  • Buy next years Stationary the year before when it goes on special. You can save 50% by being prepared.

  • Reuse last years stationary when there’s plenty of life left in them. Only buy what you actually need off the school list.

  • Use last years textas and even exercise books, it’s a wonder how much barely gets used

  • Bulk cook and portion, and bulk purchase stationery and divide – go by the school list but look for the cheaper options!

  • I love shopping inline and love this shop

  • Shop around on online sites for bulk buys ,also make sure you need everything on the list

  • buy in bulk and portion into sandwich bags, also get family to gift pens, pencils, contact etc as Christmas presents. Saves you the outlay

  • Buy containers for chopped fruit, sandwhiches and nibbles. Then you can A) buy in bulk and save and B) not have plastic bag expenses!!

  • Buy the Uniforms second hand if you can, There are a lot of well looked after ones. Also use student assistance if you have to.

  • Don’t always feel like you have to buy everything brand new. Look around the house to see what you have left over, first!

  • I always got the uniforms late in the previous year ready for school the next year.

  • buy in bulk when there are specials & bake or make in bulk saves heaps of time

  • Buy as much as you can for the following year when this years stuff goes on special when school goes back.

  • The Santa sacks at our house are always stuffed with back to school items purchased on sale during the year.

  • Make as much as you can homemade and freeze as prepackaged food is so expensive. Break down into snack sizes things like popcorn in the microwave, nutrigrain cereal for cheap snack ideas, cut block cheese into cubs yourself.

  • Bake muffins, banana bread and a slice at the same time. Freeze them and put in lunchbox. Doubles up as a icebrick until it thaws.
