I have seen posted several times recently by fellow mothers, tweets and Insta’s all about how expensive school uniform is and what a pricey affair awaits several families over the coming weeks as they set out to kit their kids out for the new school year. Bearing in mind that kids grow so fast, their white Ts get stained daily and they get up to all sorts of adventures in it during a day at school, I personally, and know I am not alone when I say that I can’t abide paying tonnes on uniform yet also recognise that it is so hard as a parent to find the right balance of value, comfort and durability when they are in it every day.
Well here is a “Lidl Surprise” just for you and the answer to tick all of the boxes we seek – Next week Lidl will be launching its 1st ever full school uniform range for this coming school year and it is remarkably cheap whilst maintaining quality. As a mother that is
tight frugal and always on the hunt for best price and value on things, I am blown away with how little it costs for how lovely it is, and it actually makes me excited to think how little it would cost to kit 2 kids out for school!
Last year I made the mistake of buying Ethan’s uniform practically the week before school started and therefore was limited on choice and probably spent way more than I needed to or wanted to. When I look at what Lidl has on offer next week, not only can we parents be uber organised and get it all in before a mad rush at the end of the summer, but they are also giving us the choice to spend far less than we need to on our kids uniform’s.
I was excited that they recently sent us over some samples of their bargainous uniform range for Ethan & Megan to try and put to the test, and I couldn’t be happier with it. I just think its everything you could want as a parent; it fits the kids well and is easy to move in and for the sizes they wore (Megs 4-6 , E 6-8) has plenty of growth in it too, so another money saver as we hopefully won’t be replacing it near the end of the year when they have shot up. I think that it feels really nice light fabric and looks really smart. And then of course the price is not only good…its unbelievably cheap. I will most definitely be stocking up on the white Ts because for the price they are it would be ridiculous not to, and then some more trousers for Ethan as he prefers the fabric to the ones he has had this year. I am also rather intrigued to give the shoes and coats a try as well as other PE items.
Megans thoughts – “I like ma new school uniform because I look cool and I can still run and do this *twists* and jump so high and even play football, and they are all my favourite things to do”
Ethan’s thoughts – “Oooo I like these trousers mummy, so much softer than my others aren’t they? I like this T-shirt too mummy its nice and long and has more buttons. I think I look so smart in my new uniform”
Don’t get caught up in the huge expenditure that can be school uniform… get yourself down to you local Lidl from the 21st July and I think you will be VERY surprised at the savings you will make this school year! It certainly gets top marks from us!
*Thank you to Lidl for sending us some uniform samples at no cost to try in return for an honest review.
