I have been avoiding the Back To School isles, but today I had to bite the bullet and go shopping for my daughters' school supplies. I have one in 8th grade and another in 6th grade. The schools provide grade level lists for all items that are needed.
So I headed to Walmart, which I knew would have everything I needed at the best price. I got up early and was there by 7 a.m.
No one was there yet!! Ahhh, Back to School shopping in peace.
Is there anything more lovely than fresh pens, pencils and paper?
Colored pens weren't on the list, but these somehow ended up in my cart.
Apparently everyone else does, because they were all gone!
I found everything I needed and was able to cross everything off the lists!
So happy to be done and not stress about having to go shopping last minute or over the weekend!!
My advice to busy teachers and moms is to head out early and just get it done!! It will save you time later, especially if they run out of something, which is why I ended up at so many different stores last year.
Now that's done I can concentrate on setting up my classroom and getting ready for my kiddos to return next Wednesday! Wish me luck!
