ANY parent will know that school uniform doesn't come cheap – especially when you have more than one kid to buy for.
But mums and dads have been rushing to their local Aldi stores after spotting everything from polo tops and trousers to PE kits being sold for bargain prices.
Delighted Sarah Ross took to money-saving Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains and posted a snap of her very impressive school uniform haul.
Alongside the image, she penned: "Still can't get over how cheap this was!!!"
She went on to say how she purchased 10 pairs of trousers for £1.75 each, 12 polo shirts, which cost £1.75 for a pack of 2, and 10 pairs of socks, (5 in a pack) for £2.49.
The savvy shopper also managed to get hold of her PE kits for a bargain price.
