May is the chaotic back-to-school shopping season in the Philippines. The survey tells us majority of moms shop around this time. That is why we believe April is the best time to go back-to-school shopping! If you intend to do it in May, we advise to schedule it during the first and second week of the month. Weekday mornings are the best if you’re planning to visit the mall. But there’s a better option… ONLINE SHOPPING!
