Schoolbooks, labels.. where to get them in Ireland

Hello Reader,

It’s that time of the year ( sort of halfway the holidays) when you start to see and hear adverts for the back to school stuff…I have yet to get some books for my oldest son, as he’s going to Senior Infants.

At the end of this last schoolyear, my neighbours very kindly dropped off some books of their kids they no longer no need, which leaves me to find the rest…so what are your options….

Probably best known is an Irish  On-Line Company called http://www.schoolbooks.ie/ – got Ruebens book there last year. They can also  cover the books at an extra charge. Delivery is 6 Euros, very efficient.
As I was doing some research on their website, I found out that they have teamed up with Supervalu.
If you have a Supervalu Loyalty tag, you can avail of a 10 % discount! You can find out more here
I also found out about http://moms.carambola.ie/ , their slogan is :
Carambola Moms help families through school by providing one source for the three school essentials of schoolbooks, uniforms and healthy snacks & drinks.

There is an alternative to buying new! Check out http://www.schoolbookexchange.ie/ for more information.

Or maybe post your ( wanted/unwanted) books here : Freecycle or at Jumbletown

As I was driving through my local town, I saw a big poster at the local bookshop called Gort School Supplies, offering free covering and labels which I thought was a pretty good deal too!
You can ring them on 091-632791 to place your order ( Tell them I sent you!)

There is also http://www.schoolsupply.ie/ ( 7.5% discount), www.BooksUnlimited.ie/SchoolBooks (5% discount) and http://www.schoolbooks4u.ie/ (5% discount) is just another selection !

As although I got my books at http://www.schoolbooks.ie/ last year, I still needed to get the labels( sort of very last minute!) Luckilly another on line company called Namelabels stood up to the challenge and got me the required labels 🙂

So that’s it for me now, hope you have found this  usefull and feel free to add other resources as this is just a limited overview!
Thanks,
Katleen
