Back to school week can be stressful, exciting and sometimes confusing all wrapped up into one.
What you might not know is that small choices to save some time now could also build up into some of the bigger expenses over the course of the year.
Here's how you can beat to exess spending this school year,
Buy in bulk
In a comparison between some key multipacks of snacks, data has shown that shoppers can save up to $777* per year just buying the same snack in bulk. Key foods like crackers, cheese and yoghurts were some of those compared. Small efforts in the kitchen could save some big dollars in the bank.
Consider your savings account
If you haven't had a look at yours or your child's savings account lately, it could really pay to find a better place to stash your cash. You can save some cash with smart decisions during the year and really maximise the return with the right account.

Buy for now, and the future
Sure, it might seem a bit big right now, but buying that extra size up could save a fortune in school uniforms over the years. It doesn't have to look this way though, learn how to sew hems on those future-proofing clothes with Kidspot's how-to video.
