Back to school shopping is one of my favourites when I was a kid. Parang may kakaibang saya ang bagong pencil, erasers, yung maraming function na pencil case (haha!) sa ating mga kabataan noon di ba? It’s no wonder why Zee was so happy and excited when we went to the Grand Back-to-School Fair of National Book Store.

Nakakatuwa kasi noon, ako yung binibilhan ng nanay ko, ngayon ako na yung may anak na binibilhan ng school supplies.


  • Admission is FREE and it showcases high quality brands

Being frugal doesnโ€™t mean we always go for the one with the cheapest price tag. Mas tipid kapag quality products ang binibili at nakakatuwa na yung mga favorite at trusted natin na brands nasa Back To School Fair.



  • Lots of freebies and promos

You can score free products like pens, drawstring bags, tumbler and more, masaya din kasi may may mga games sa mga booth.

I also love that they have colouring activities for kids!

Nakakatuwa din na may mga actual product demo ๐Ÿ™‚

SALE ITEMS! Marami sa Bag and lunch boxes..

  • Wide and complete variety of choices

From basic notebooks, pens, folders, to socks, bags and lunch boxes, they are all available. One-stop-shop talaga ang National Book Store.ย The place is spacious enough to move and stroll around.

May hygiene kit na and socks kaya di ka na lilipat sa ibang store.

May shoes din mommies, matibay daw itong brand na ito “Easy Soft”

Here are some TIPID TIPS for your back to school shopping:

  1. Do the inventory and create a list – check what you still have at home, then create a list of the things that your child needs.
  2. Take advantage of discounts when you buy in bulk – stock on supplies that you will need for the entire school year
  3. Stick to your alloted budget – you don’t need to buy all things cute, stick to your budget, discipline momsh!
  4. Bring your Laking National Card – aba, sayang din ang points mommies
  5. Bring your ecobag – not a tipid tip, but it will make your after shopping experience more smooth and easy.

    So true! excited ako kapag pasukan dahil usually bago at ung iba eh reuse lang keri pa naman. Naeexcite ako sa mga new cute items, pens,jumbo crayons hehhee. Noong Elementary suportado kami ng mga nuns kaya libre school supplies. After nun,sina Mama na bibili at doon na papasok ung tipid kasi mahirap sa probinsya. Nakakatuwa na as a mom, i am still fond of buying school items kasi some ay wala ako nun. Diba dami na ngayon din na bago at iba iba. Really helpful ang tips na yan, the list importante yan and sticking sa budget hahaha sa sobra tuwa bka ung unnecessary pa naman ma sali sa cart natin๐Ÿ˜Š

    Thanks for all the Tips mommy.

    Super na kakatuwa at iba ang feeling pag may bagong mga school supplies ang mga kids natin. Pati sila excited sila sa pag pasok sa school.

    Yes Good quality dapat ang bilhin natin mga gamit, kasi minsan kakahanap natin ng mura pero ang quality hindi maganda di rin tayo naka tipid. Kaya very thankful ako na may mga ganitong event sa mga mall kasi alam natin mga mommy at daddy na prove and tested na ang mga product o items nila.
