As the saying goes, early bird catches the worm. That is why it is always best to score school and office goodies as early as April so you can prepare ahead of time. To start with, we have gathered survey responses from Philippine-based moms with school kids. Check out what they say about the right timing to do back to school shopping:
In summary, here are five good reasons why early back to school shopping in April can truly save you from loads of stress and nerve-wrecking chaos.
You spare yourself from the crowd
As we all know, shopping in a crowded place is a big no-no for most of us. Early shopping has a huge advantage because you don’t shrink yourselves into the last minute shoppers. Thus, you get that calm ambiance when you go shopping spree in the non-peak season.
It is definitely hassle-free
We’re sure you’ve already heard this countless times before; but we can never miss out on this one. Buying school and office stuff as early as April saves you from all the possible discomforts- the oh-so-loooooooong line in the cashier, some impatient customers, the cluttered shopping carts and notebooks, you name it. You become less carried away by the pressure and chaos brought about by numerous shoppers buying the same products as yours.
You have more time to choose
Yes, you get to shop at your own pace because you have all the time and space you need when you go early shopping. We always advise our dear shoppers to avoid last minute shopping especially during the peak season as they may lose the privilege of choosing only the best supplies. Plus, there is a smaller chance of forgetting all the things you need to buy.
You can compare prices
When you shop along in a sea of people, chances are you would rather leave the store soon. This scenario may cause you to forget comparing prices on certain products. You definitely can’t miss out on what’s important; and you would not want to go above and beyond your budget.
You get the best stock
As stated in the first sentence, the early bird always catches the worm. The same works with the early shoppers. You’ve got the advantage of grabbing the best stocks first before the majority could. You also get to buy the new releases and your choice of products without the rivalry from other shoppers.
If you want to get first dibs on notebook designs, budget-friendly items, and hard-to-find school supplies, be sure to pre-order or fill your cart online at the NBS online store.
