Frugal Back to School Ideas


Hands up who is ready for their kids to go back to school now?

I am certainly getting to that stage now; 9 weeks is a long old stretch with 3 kids to entertain on a daily basis! We still have a few activities left on our summer bucket list, but the weather is really holding us back right now. We could really use a good few sunny days, so that we can take a few trips out and enjoy some picnics outdoors, my kids are not made to be kept indoors all day.

The Family Frugal Linky last week was bursting with ideas to help you get ready for Back to School and here are my favourites:
