Back to School Shopping at National Bookstore

By Mommy Donna and Kib - May 23, 2017

Few more weeks and another school year will start again.  Parents are now busy enrolling their children and completing the materials they need for school.  

I remember when I was still studying, my family dedicates one weekend to buy all the materials my siblings and I need for school.  My parents involve us in school supplies shopping so we can personally choose the notebooks and pens we wanted to use for the whole school year.  We usually buy all our school supplies at National Bookstore because it has all the things we needed.

Now that I already have my own child, National Bookstore is also my choice for buying school supplies.  Sometimes, we do also make a stop at National Bookstore because Kib likes to read books there.  

Kib is such a bookworm!  Our National Bookstore trip won't be complete without stopping to the books section to read

With the changing needs of the Filipino families, National Bookstore has made school supplies shopping very easy, convenient, and budget-friendly!
