Back to school: a considerable budget for families

The start of the school year is fast approaching. Now is the time to buy school supplies. This August 18, three million families will receive the back-to-school allowance. A good thing for this family of eight children. Hélène Marien still has five children in school, and this year, she will receive 1,800 euros in allowance. “It is a help which is really providential at this time of the year because it is a time when we are going to have a lot of expenses”, she confides at the microphone of France 3.

Recycle some business

Registration for extra-curricular activities, public transport, for this family of farmers, this back to school is quite a budget. So to save on her shopping, she has some tips. If she takes advantage of the promotions, she also reuses last year’s stuff. Like many, Hélène chose to wait for the payment of the back-to-school allowance to go and buy the missing school supplies. For about twenty articles, she gets by for 58 euros. A reasonable amount. Thanks to the savings, Hélène will be able to offer music lessons to her children.
