I, like many I’m sure LOVED new stationery at the end of the school year. When those Bidvest Walton catalogues were sent home with us and we had to pick and choose what we wanted and needed for the new school year, it was so exciting! And then that massive cardboard box arrived – it was like Christmas!
Now that I am a mama myself and work a lot from home stationery shopping has become a necessity. Being the OCD organised woman I am I like to plan a head, write a list and do an annual shop and stock up on (as much as I can) of the stationery that myself and Maddie will need for the year.
It’s already that time of the year again, as as I find myself winding down after another crazy year, I am looking forward to the festive season break with our loved ones, yet while working towards some much-needed down time the my planning for 2019 is already underway and our big return back-to-school and work is on the top of my to do list.
When I think of stationery – I immediately think of Bidvest Waltons as the one-stop shop for all education and work requirements offering the highest quality products and widest variety. From pre-school to office supplies, Bidvest Waltons has it all.
Although Maddie is still only in play school I take pride in doing arts and craft activities with her and like to restock her art container of things like crayons, pencils, coloured markers, stamps, stickers, glitter glues, colouring books, coloured paper and puzzles. Having a designated box of supplies really allows her creativity to run wild and we get up to such fun. If you don’t already do this I urge you to give it a try!
While I need an annual planner, highlighters, glue, sellotape and other odds to keep my home office and scrapbooking station going.
One of my favourite things about Bidvest Waltons is their various ‘Back-To-School solutions’ which really makes it easy and convenient to do your annual shop their various purchase options available including;
School bulk orders – allowing schools to place bulk orders for all their supplies. Catalogue orders – allowing the parent or the learner to order exactly what the school has prescribed and once the selection has been made the orders are then packed invoiced and delivered to the school on the specified date.
Pre-Pack orders – a system implemented specifically for young children entering the school system. Children are expected to be fully equipped upon arrival at school and Bidvest Waltons helps make this process a whole lot easier. Stationery packs are made up as per your school’s specified requirements and sold on orientation day to parents
Online orders – for the parent who prefers the convenience of online shopping. The Back-To-School range is available online, partner schools are available and the order is placed in a few easy to follow steps. The order is processed and delivered to the school on the very same day as catalogue collections. For additional convenience Bidvest Waltons offers home, office and nearest store delivery.
Day to Day orders – offering anything a customer may need on a day to day basis. Experienced staff are available to visit schools and offices throughout the year and assist in day to day needs.
And if you like me loves to look around, physically touch and feel products and enjoys the in store shop their stores are beautiful, spacious and their staff are so helpful and friendly. Maddie and I had a blast choosing our supplies for the year!
Here’s a peek at what we bought:
And for me:
The Bidvest Walton’s Back-To-School campaign honestly solves the hassle of having to
sort out school supplies at the last minute and offers quality supplies at
affordable prices, all while ensuring we are both prepared and well
equipped on the first day back in the new year.
