While Christmas is just a few days away, now would be a good time to start preparing for the school year in the coming few weeks. Back-to-school season is already ongoing and I’m sure parents like you with schooling kids have a lot to prepare for them to be ready when school starts.
Before you panic of where to go and what to buy, here is a guide for you to plan out not just your children will need, but also how to make the most of deals and promotions.
When it comes to stationery and books, this place is a cult-favourite for any Singaporean even though there are now fewer bookstore options as the last few MPH and Times bookstores have shut down just a few months ago. Nevertheless, Popular is now having a promotion until 12 Jan 2020 up to 50% discount on selected items and another exclusive 5% off from textbooks for members. Just send your school booklist to them here but do hurry because the last submission is 22 December 2019!

As parents, you would want the best for your children and do so to help them in the long run. But exposing children to so many activities starting at 3 years old is just too much. Even if we want them to experience various activities, there are still fees to pay for the enrichment programmes.
