Schools across the country head back soon and this is your timely reminder that the reduced speed limit in school zones is 40km per hour!
But what about the back to school sales? How can you use them to your advantage?
Obviously parents need to fill their book lists, but if you have the capability, now is a great time to stock up on supplies your children will need later in the year. Apart from getting a bargain, having stock on hand is a fabulous chance to reduce your stress levels when little Johnny needs a glue stick but it’s 9pm on a Sunday night…
We also know that kids seem to start growing as soon as the school uniforms are purchased – how about using lay-by to purchase the next size up? Most lay-by options offer an 8 week payment plan which gives you around two months to complete your purchase.
If you’re in business, these sales can help you and your budgeting too! There is no harm is stocking up on pens and paper (or whatever your stationery requirements are). Things that never go out of style or date and that are used regularly can often be purchased for a fraction of the cost in the “Back to School” sales. I also like to idea of picking up one of the pretty pens and notebooks that are currently on offer.
How will you be availing of the back to school sales?
