Get ready to go back to school on eBay
It’s not the thing that your children will thank you for thinking of, but it’s that time of year to start gathering everything they need ready to go back to school.
eBay are making it easy for you to do your back to school shopping from the comfort of your armchair, so drag out that iPad or laptop and get browsing and don’t forget those all important name tags or your little one will be coming home with someone else’s school jumper, which almost always means it’s a grotty old faded one that’s been washed to carelessly.
(That reminds me of the burns that used to appears on all my mates school jumpers where they’d been ironed at too high a temperature, do you remember the old navy school jumpers with the orange burns on the sleeves that would start appearing towards the end of the first term?)
eBay have sports wear, school accessories, clothes & shoes and a tech section on the back to school microsite, so you’ll be able to pick up almost everything you need bar the school tie and blazer. Surprisingly though eBay have gone too high tech and have forgotten to include the basics such as the new geometry set and calculator so you might have to browse the main site for these back to school essentials. You’d think someone at eBay would have young children and realise a ruler and protractor are more important than a laptop!
