With school out for some and the summer holidays around the corner for others, it might seem a bit early to talk about going back to school, but next to Christmas and the connected sales period, back to school is one of the biggest expenses for shoppers with children.
With summer holidays to pay for and school uniforms and equipment to buy, autumn expenses put a great strain on the finances of families across the UK. What this means to shoppers is that their habits start to change as families return to their work/school routines.
