School break is almost over.  Wait what?  I hear my kids ask that question with somewhat a disbelief tone.  Because!  I also can't believe that school season is waiting for us around the curb.  Yup, somewhere there!  Okay, so let me shake off this shock and start to face reality that back to school means back-to-gastos for most parents sending more than one child to school.  I would know, I am sending two now and in a few years, they will be three.  But all's good.

Alam niyo the Back To School season brings a good nostalgic feeling to me.  I remember as a child, I love coming back to my school to enroll and then head straight to National Book Store in Cubao to shop for school supplies.  I love the sight and smell of new school stuff.  I love running my hand through new pad papers and notebooks, trying out inks of different pens, and choosing the design of my pencil case myself.  And I am always reminded of that every time I enter any National Book Store.  It was a beautiful memory of my mom and I - which I have been passing on to my kids as well.  Indeed you could say I am #LakingNational.

Everything you need for school is at National Book Store.  You could find anything and everything here.  From writing materials, arts and crafts, books, accessories, and now so much more new things for school is under the roof of National Book Store.

Admit it, who wouldn't trust National Book Store for having everything?   They've been with every Filipino family supporting our school and office needs for 75 years!  That's why it's also about time that they venture into the education field with the recent launch of their NBS College.

Also, to keep up with the times and needs of busy moms who have not time to go out or brave the traffic, they accept your school supply orders via their website or via delivery hotline ‎‎8888-627.  They will deliver right to your door step nationwide.  Delivery is FREE for minimum of Php1,000 purchase in Metro Manila and Php2,500 in provinces. All these were announced during the Back-To-School event hosted by Patty Laurel-Filart.
As a practical mom, I highly appreciate their BEST BUY items and bundles which will make you save a few pesos compared to buying other branded items. The Best Buy is indeed Best Value for moms especially for those shopping Back-To-School on a budget.  They have everything from folders, pad papers, glue, erasers, ball pens and so much more!  This made me really happy. 
If your're new to back to school shopping, National Book Store will never leave you clueless as to what to purchase for your kids because of their school level online shopping guide.

My school kids Wes and Dandre are incoming Grades 2 and Grade 9.  Though I already knew what to buy because I came with a checklist of which to buy, the back to school shopping guide online is still a great  idea.  Such convenience for all National Book Store shoppers!
So, I recently went Back To School shopping and I had an awesome experience!  I was able to complete my list for both Dandre and Wes for a total of Php 2,250.00.  With this I was able to buy the following:
