Heading into an Office Depot last night, I saw the packed parking lot and knew, yes, it was time for back-to-school shopping. It amazes me that every year I receive a list about a mile long of school items my current third grader (formerly a first and second grader) must have for school. We probably have five Crayola boxes of 100 mixed colors. Why must I buy these anew every year — don’t crayons last? And, the list goes on…erasers, gluesticks, pencils, pens, new backpack, new lunchbox and a bill at the end that often leaves me in a state of shock.
What to do? Well, it appears we can’t quite get out of buying all of those shiny new school supplies… so here are a couple of ways to lower the amount you spend each fall.
