School Supply SCORE!
July 27, 2013 at 3:19 PM

Last year I downloaded a supply list off the school website for my elementary son & 2 middle school daughters. I bought everything on the lists. Then they came home with the REAL lists & I found out they didn't need everything I bought. SO... I "tucked" the extras away for future use. 

I just downloaded this year's supply lists & am going through what I already have plus items that can be reused from last school year (i.e. zipper pouch, pens, erasers, etc). I think I have everything on the 5th grader's list from all the leftovers plus some from the DDs' lists! HALLELUJAH! I don't have to spend as much as I thought I would!!! 

I think this is the 1st time I have been excited about school supply shopping! Oh.... & that means more money to spend on clothing!! WOOHOO!!!!

    Awesome! I've been hitting up the office stores & getting really good deals. I finished off my 2nd graders list for about $20.
