We just bought the kids school supplies today. We were a little behind schedule, but just in time before school opens next week. We bought them notebooks, pad paper, pens, bond paper and more. Shopping for school supplies this year is more convenient for us because the kids, who are now both in high school, will be using similar school items. It saves us time wandering around the bookstore. But we could have saved more and might have an extra budget to buy outdoor antennas if we went to Divi for their school supplies.
It’s school supplies shopping season once again. But we’re not thinking about going shopping yet. I have to wait until next month to enroll the kids. I won’t need any list as we have been buying the same stuff every year (notebooks, pad paper, pencil and pen, bond paper, colors and coloring pens, plastic cover, pair of scissors, etc.). My daughter may need a new bag this year. She prefers backpack because it is convenient for carrying all her school stuff. My friends recommend Marmot Hiking Backpacks so I’m going to check for it on our next visit to the mall.
The kids and I went bookstore-hopping the other day. We were going past the school supply area when I asked my daughter if she wants to buy some school supplies ahead of our shopping date next month. My daughter disliked the idea, saying school has only ended a few weeks ago and they have yet to enjoy summer vacation. It’s too soon to think about school. My son said, “chill, mom!” 😀
