A Back to School Buying Guide with Ebay

back-to-school buyers guide

It is just around the corner and yet again for about the fourth year in a row my organisational skills are letting me down. Back to school is upon us and I have much to do and such little time left. Ah well…tradition  and all that!

I do have, as you would expect, some thrifty ideas up my sleeve. After the almost inevitable extra summer spending it is crucial not to go overboard with back to school. With a little wisdom and a few signposts you can make some really smart back to school buying choices.

I love to shop at ebay (I think all thrifty parents do!) and they have some wonderful back to school items. I have curated my first ebay collection of items round the theme of back to school and shared some of my wisdom over on their blog. I would love for you to come and have a read.

Do pop and have a look at my back to school ebay collection and buyers guide.

    Already a huge eBay fan, but this year discovered the joy of buying cheap things for back to school there. Brilliant.
