Proud to be partnering with Officeworks
Next year will be full of lasts for me. My eldest daughter will be in grade 12 and I can’t believe how fast the years have flown by. It’s a happy thing…and just a bit sad too. This week, I gathered the children’s school lists together and it occurred to me that this will be my 12th back to school shop.
In the past, I have fulfilled the lists in two different ways. Going with the default list is easy, but it always costs more. I have also attempted to do it myself, and it has always been a DISASTER. An absolute disaster! Trying to manage four separate school supply lists can be quite stressful. So I was stoked I was to hear about the free School List Service available at Officeworks.
This year, instead of running around trying to do it myself to save money, all I did was upload all four lists to the Officeworks website– I didn’t even need to leave the house. There is also the option to drop the lists off to the nearest Officeworks store.
The online service was a quick and easy process. I simply crossed out any items I didn’t need on the list, snapped a picture on my iPhone and uploaded the picture online with relevant personal details.
I like how the system allows you to specify colour and quality preference too, depending on your budget and child’s preferences. The last step in the process is to pick a date to collect the items in-store. Once the order is placed, items are picked, packed and ready to go within 48 hours.
Next thing, I received a SMS notification that my items were ready for collection from my nominated store and my four boxes were waiting for me when I dropped by. I did the math and worked out I saved $54.65 by doing it this way. Plus I saved time (and my sanity) too because I didn’t have to do it all myself. Best of both worlds.
