3 January 2024: Australian families are expected to save on their school supplies this year as BIG W drops prices on its most popular stationery items this Back To School period by up to 50% compared to last year.

With stationery products starting at just 25 cents, customers can fill their pencil cases for a total of $2.00, pick up their uniform basics from $3, backpacks from $10 and new to BIG W this year, the Brilliant Basics 5 piece lunch box pack at only $8.

Amanda Lunn, BIG W’s Commercial Director said, “Back to School is an exciting time for many families, but we are conscious that it can also be a time that puts pressure on family budgets. 

We have a responsibility to ensure Australian families have access to affordable quality products, and that’s why this year we’ve worked hard to bring the price of our most popular items down by up to 50%. We’re confident that BIG W will lead the way for quality and low price school supplies.” 

BIG W’s most popular stationery items for 25 cents:

Mum of four and savvy shopper, Candice Tanna, highlights her advice for managing the Back To School shop; “As a family of four, we are always looking for ways to keep costs down, especially as 2024 will be our first year having to buy school items for all children with our youngest starting prep. 

My key advice for families would be to start shopping as soon as possible, even if it’s just buying a few items here and there in the lead up to school returning. This will help you spread the cost over multiple weeks. Buying key items in bulk such as socks and essential stationery items is also a big help especially for those with multiple children in school who can share the items. ”

Those looking for added value this Back To School can also get 10x Everyday Rewards points when they shop products from leading back to school brands such as Artline, Sistema, Logitech, Spirax, BIC, Post It, Cra Z Art, Spacetalk and Sharpie.

Customers can shop Back To School in store, online or via the BIG W app until 31 January 2024 with Home Delivery, Pick up and Direct to Boot available.
