Aldermore Bank regularly seeks advice from its community of savers to provide suggestions for cutting back throughout the year. Through the summer months, the Bank collated clever ideas from those in the know to help Britons make the most of the holiday season.
And, over the past couple of weeks, the Bank has once again drawn on its community to gather some top tips for saving; this time during the back-to-school period. From advice on how to maximise the budget when shopping for uniforms, to how to make sure lunches don’t go to waste, read on for some great tips for buying cleverly when it comes to getting the kids back to school.

Mum of five, Jessamine Hislop-Newton realised back in 2010 that she was ready for a new challenge in life to fit around her growing family.
