Back to school in September - The cost of school supplies.

Where is the best place to shop? Are there any deals to be had?

A 2  year price comparison for the 2017/2018 and  2018/2019 academic years

 

back to school 2It’s that time of year again when families are hitting the stores with their back-to-school lists. In 2015 the cost of an average shopping cart for school supplies was 400 shekels per pupil.

Remember, four hundred shekels does not include the cost of a school bag, a desk and chair, books and school uniforms. You could easily be looking at 1,500 NIS+ outlay per child. If you are buying a computer or tablet, a printer or a phone for your child, you could be looking at an outlay of around 5,000 shekels.

Are there any real deals and ways to save money? Is you local Dollar Shop any cheaper than the large retailers like Krawitz or Office Depot or even your neighborhood stationery store? What about buying online?

With our list of common school items we did an online comparison between Krawitz and Office Depot. We also checked our local dollar-shop in Haifa.

Prices are accurate as of 9.08.2018. We cannot guarantee that on the actual date of purchase, these prices will be the same.
