We spent a day at Ilac shopping for #Backtoschool and got loads of the stuff on our list! With 4 kids to sort, its a long list!!!!
We started, as we always do, with coffee!! We picked up some hot & iced coffees from Starbucks Ilac and while we were there, picked up a cool water bottle for our 16 yr old. She loves Starbucks and was delighted to have one of their bottles as her back to school reusable bottle! Have a look here at how we started the day….
First up, uniforms from Dunnes Stores. 2 pack polo shirts from €3, fleece joggers from €5, also good range of skirts, trousers, cardigans, sweaters, bags, lunch boxes and school stationery! #BuyIrish #SupportLocal
Next up, we wanted to tackle stationery. For colourful stationery and accessories, Flying Tiger is brill. We picked up lots of cool notebooks, markers, pens, pencils, staplers and more. And most importantly, we picked up a very nice fan for €3, which has kept us sane during this crazy heat!
For raincoats and jackets with reflectors, we love Regatta. They always have great sales in store too. Great for picking up coats with reflectors that are windproof and rainproof!
For smaller kids, we love Smiggle. Their bundles are fab and great value. The bags, lunchboxes, pencil cases are excellent quality and so fun, with colourful patterns and loads of colour! Have a look here:
Trainers can be very expensive but some schools insist on all black or all white, plain runners. Cans at Ilac have all white runners from €10, perfect for teens! And great for Mammy too as they won’t break the bank!
The Works have great offers on stationery, art supplies. We especially like the Art products, absolutely brilliant value!
