2 min read

When you enter into an arts material shops in Dubai, you get lured by the attractive arts material over there and then without even realizing you over spend on the items that you would never even use. If this is what happens to you just think of your innocent little ones that how can they resist. But the truth is that whatever the situation is you need to stick to your budget. Here we have some tips for you to save on back to school items:

Check prices:

You don’t just have to check on the price tag before buying them but you also need to remember the prices in which you bought certain items last year. You can also check prices throughout the year and for this you can also download any shopping app or check them up when you are visiting any super market and then you can buy the useable items in advance when back to school items are sold in lower prices and are off demand.

Lookup for Sale:

You just have to keep an eye on the sale. And there is no shame in buying something from sale. There are a lot of school stationery shops in Dubai and they may offer huge discounts and sales. By keeping an eye on to these discounts and sales you can save a lot but you should be lucky enough to know. There are also some departmental stores that offer back to school sales and discounts.

Avoid cheap items:

Sometimes in order to save money we turn towards cheaper items. But here you compromise on quality. And compromising in quality means that they will break and damage every now and then so in a long run if you look into it, you are technically spending more than you are saving. Similarly, expensive items are not always of good quality. You just need to invest on durable items that are reasonable too and for this purpose you can check reviews of different products.

Thrift Stores:

Thrift stores can be great for alot of different supplies that you would not get on discount easily. But you can easily find them on a cheaper rate at thrift stores. They are not only cheap but good to go with. You can also find the day to day items over there on lower rates as compare to other stores.
