Basic tips to Organize School Supplies

Standard

School’s starting and it’s stressful but equally exciting. Everyone is busy with preps, finishing up with shopping, getting done with left over homework and projects and getting ready with all the cool school gear to meet friends.

When it comes to preparations, it is really important to stay organized, maintain a list and don’t go overboard with shopping. Shopping for school supplies can be a major hassle, with too many options at times and very less time. It’s time, get organized, make the most of this!

Here’s how you can do it:

  • Make a list: Map it all out. Make a list of what you want, what you need, what you already have and what’s not so important.
  • Buy things in bulk: Get your stuff in large quantities so it all lasts you a year or at least a semester. Spare yourself several trips to the stationery stores during the year and save yourself from spending too much.
  • Map out the store locations, make an itinerary: Uniforms from one place, stationery from one and shoes from one. Or you can get everything online with com now!
  • Time yourself!

Do all this and you’ve got a great chance at acing the school supplies shopping spree! Or just order online with Yayvo.com!

Jobs for Women in Pakistan – Unilever Career by Choice

Standard

Women in Pakistan, regardless of what field they choose to study, often are forced to settle down and leave their careers one they attain what elders call ‘suitable age’ for marriage. Old aunties are often on the lookout for well educated young girls to marry them to their sons – only to then sit at home and not utilize any of the skills and knowledge the girls spent years learning.

Societal pressure makes many women hesitant to pursue the career of their dreams. At times an opportunity leads them away from home, maybe to a distant land. Just the idea of living alone and working is enough to earn a no from their family members.
