How to save money on back to school supplies

School stationery deals
Next on the list is stationery, pencil cases, lunchboxes and water bottles. Find fun stationery at places like Ryman, The Works and Claire's or go to any leading supermarket for the basics at rock bottom prices. Get them classroom ready and keep them hydrated throughout the day with a leak proof water bottle. Older kids may need maths sets and calculators - head to WHSmith or Staples for these.
