Uniform Hacks

Recycle uniform

Nishma Shah of Family Lives realises that ‘with all the costs of days out, holidays and the day to day bills, budgeting for uniforms can be really stressful.’ Purchasing a complete set of new uniform at full price can be incredibly expensive. A cost-effective solution is to get hold of second hand uniform, which can be available at the same quality, but for a fraction of the price.

Family Lives recommend finding out whether ‘there is a recycling scheme set up in your local community or via the school,’ where you can buy uniform at a much lower cost. It’s also useful to check ‘if friends or family members whose children attend the same school have uniform that they have grown out of.’
