Sarah’s money saving tip: School uniform saver

Sarah's money saving tip

Sarah's money saving tipThis week’s money saving tip comes from Sarah who saves money on school uniform with this thrifty tip.

“Instead of buying new school trousers as soon as they become too short I take down the hem and press them so they are as good as new.

“I also buy a plain school jumper and sew the school badge on myself, or use the iron-on strips to make it even simpler!”

MyFamilyClub’s tips to save money on school uniform

Supermarket savvy

If you can, avoid specialist school uniform retailers. There are usually much cheaper deals available at supermarkets and on the high street.

Get swapping

Join a school uniform swapping group with other parents from your child’s school. So if your child has grown out of their uniform, you can swap!

If your school doesn’t have a uniform swapping group, why not set one up?

Buy logos separately

Some schools may ask you to buy branded items with the school’s logo. These are usually more expensive than the more generic equivalents. Ask if those logos are available separately as sew-on or iron-on products.
