Towards the end of 2020, we made a decision to enroll all 3 of our children in school. This wasn’t an easy decision, but it was a necessary one! We had been indoors under lockdown for 10months straight (going out only when necessary). Our home was getting smaller with each day, and the kids were quite frankly over seeing us on a daily basis. 

Shortly after registering the kids in school, the sheer panic that came with the realization of how much money we’d have to spend buying school stationery set in. I spent almost the entire month of December avoiding anything and everything that would tempt me to spend money. I wanted to save as much and spend as little as possible. Just to make sure that we had enough for the school supplies run in January.

Needless to say, January came and preparations for the new school year began. Without skipping a beat, we went shopping for school stationery.

CNA was the first store I went into. Naturally so because I grew up watching my mother get our stationery from there. It’s amazing the kind of impact our mothers have on us even when we think it’s nothing.

At first, I was a bit worried but after adding a few of the kids’ stationery items in my basket, I quickly realized that there really is nothing to worry about. CNA products are reasonably priced, and they have such great deals on back-to-school supplies. Not only was I able to get majority of what the kids needed for school (some stationery is ordered directly from school), but I was also able to save big bucks too and that’s not all!

By spending more than R799 during the CNA back-to-school promotion, I qualified to submit my entry to stand a chance to win one of my Kids’ school fees for a year. Two birds, one stone! The kids had their stationery and now I am standing in line, crossing my fingers and hoping to win the competition.

You too can enter. Spend R799 or more at CNA during the back-to-school promo, submit your entry by sms’ing your till slip to 076 346 4753. The CNA back-to-school promotion is valid while stocks last and the competition closes on the 15th of March 2021.

Happy shopping, have fun saving money, and all the best for the competition.
