Bag a back-to-school bargain
FOLLOWING the start of the school term this week, many parents are probably still clambering to buy all the necessary materials to ensure a smooth start to the year for their children.
In addition, many children will require a specific, quiet space at home for studying and homework.
Weekend Shopper has a wide selection of office equipment to help with this task.
In the General and Home Furnishings sections, the
offers significant numbers of discounted desks, office chairs, bookcases and filing cabinets.
Combinations of desks and chairs can be bought for a pittance. For example, a pine student desk with four drawers and a swivel chair sells for just $ 50.
Desks on their own average around the $40 mark. However, it’s also possible to pick up cheaper ones as this ad shows: “Desk stylish looking black and light grey top with three drawers and storage space, 90W x 60D $10.”
Sometimes, lucky shoppers can even pick up a freebie: “Desk 2x1m desk with wooden top and steel body drawers $0”.
Individual chairs range from those on castors to those without and once again range in price depending their material and age.
Commercial filing cabinets for the study or home office can range anywhere from $120 up to several hundred dollars depending on their size and what they are made from.
However, smaller cabinets, which can slot under a desk, can be found from $20.
Shoppers are likely to be impressed by the vast selection of bargain bookcases, selling for a little as $10, depending on what it’s made from.
