BETWEEN uniforms, shoes, stationary and books, shopping for back-to-school items can start to add up.
That’s why thrifty mums are raving about Matalan’s sale on school uniform items, including summer dresses for as little as 50p each.
The cut-price reductions have come just in time for the new school year.
Writing on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargians UK, one mum shared her cut-price find with other bargain hunters.
“Best bargain I’ve found for a while,” she wrote. “Matalan have reduced school summer dresses. Originally £7 reduced to £2. Took them to the till and scanned at 50p each! 3 dresses for £1.50!”
She continued: “It was a full rail in the discounted/ sale area. There were also full priced ones with the other uniform items.”
It didn’t take long for another mum to share a snap of another 50p dress from Matalan.
“I got these too, my first proper bargain,” she wrote.
However, other shoppers complained that they were unable to find similar bargains in their local Matalan stores – so it seems to be luck of the draw.
As we told you previously, mums have been raving about Lidl’s school uniform bargain bundles, but there’s a way to get them for even cheaper if you know the trick.
Elsewhere, mums are sharing their monster Monsoon hauls after picking up swimming costumes just £1 in its mega summer sale.
