The excitement of back-to-school shopping never fades – no matter the age or circumstance. Even with all the uncertainty that is hanging around the school calendar and curriculum, regardless of whether you are choosing to homeschool or return to the classroom, stationery shopping just needs to happen for the year to really begin. 

Perhaps it is the eagerness to get organised, or the determination to improve from the previous year, or maybe the vibrant designs and smells of new bags, cases and colour pens that tickle our fancy? Whatever the reason, even parents are like kids in a candy store when doing back-to-school shopping, often indulging in a few purchases for themselves! 

And who wouldn’t love a bargain or two, especially if you could fit in a special item for keeps? Here are some easy, convenient back-to-school shopping offers, at affordable prices and even some special personalised items too:
