It’s back to school once again!
I can so feel it, muthers! Today, I just learned that Anika’s school tuition for this year is Php 91,000! I literally fell off my seat because I was staring at the computer screen monitor where the tuition fee numbers were while trying to find my seat with my hand. I wasn’t able to sit down on the chair properly because it rolled away from me! Hahahaha!
It’s so expensive to put kids in good schools nowadays, ano?
Luckily for us, there are stores where we can get affordable school supplies. Kahit sa school supplies na lang mga bes, maka-tipid man lang tayo. Our go-to school supplies store is the Stationery at The SM Store. What I like best in this store is that there are a lot of different kinds of things to choose from. Like I said, they’re very affordable but they are so cute, you wouldn’t think it only costs that much.
Anika, Wowa and I went to Stationery in SM Makati last weekend. I started shopping for Anika’s school things. Read on and I’ll show you my finds =)
Anika wanted to get one of these colorful school bags. What’s unique with these bags is that they already come with the basic school supplies that you need for each grade level pupil.
The school supplies inside the bags depends on the grade level of the student. For example, the blue back in the photo above is for Grade 6 students and the contents are what Grade 6 students need.
Meanwhile, the pink bag below is for Grade 1 students so it contains only notebooks, pencils, sharpener, scissors, Grade 1 pads etc.
Cool huh? Less work and stress for the parents in collating what each of their child needs.
The best part here is that one school pack costs Php 399 only.
It’s a steal because they all come in a cool back pack for school. That rhymes! =)
We went around more and found this cute portable fan for Anika. It can get pretty hot in school so this gadget is perfect for her.
Do you remember doing this to your notebooks with springs in the spine?
They actually sell these notebooks na like that. I do that to my notebooks before because they’re easier to store in my bag without the springs.
I also found these black and white pencil cases. Cat lovers will surely go ga-ga over these especially that they’re only Php 149.75 each.
Anika asked for this Crayola BTS pack. I got it for only Php 249.75.
Like me, Anika loves pens…
… and pretty erasers.
These colored pens are only Php 49.75 each.
Bag tags are very important especially for students in Anika’s grade level. Smaller kids tend to lose things easily and we don’t want them losing their bags! This luggage tag is so on point and you can get them for only Php 89.75.
Anika bought this uber cute coin purse so she can have something to put her allowance in. It’s at Php 119.75 a piece.
I love attractive and unique notebooks in an obsessive kind of way. Check out this lovely notebook with inspirational quote for only Php 169.75.
Another adorable looking cat notebook at Php 149.75.
Anika and I can spend a lot of time browsing pretty and interesting things that we need for school.
Patchworks are in things right now and Stationery has them at Php 169.75 per pack.
One of the items that caught my attention was this colorful lunchbox priced at Php 199.75.
Stationery at SM Store has almost everything that you need for school and office.
I wanted to hoard these canvas pouches because they were really nice and they are being sold at only Php 100 each. I will go back for these because I need bags where to put my “kung ano ano” from my car to the office. It’s so nice to be given away also to friends.
If I like collecting notebooks and pens, Anika likes collecting earphones. She spent a lot of time in the earphones section with Wowa.
Apart from the coloring set that I got Anika, they also the Lil Hands BTS pack at Php 249.75 only too. These are perfect for your kindergarten kids.
I wanted to get all of these! Hahaha! If you would see my office notebooks, they are so colorful and color coordinated. You will immediately know that I own that thing.
For the older and more dalaga students, they have these fashion notebooks at Buy 1 Take 1. I remember having these when I was in college.
Head on now to the Stationery section of any The SM Store nationwide to avail of these affordable back-to-school deals =)
Lastly, I’d like to let you all know that for every minimum single receipt purchase of Php 1,500 from SM Stationery, you can get a free watch! This will be from May 1 to June 30.
