      I doubt I spend much more than $55 for all three of my kids on supplies and that

      includes new bookbags for each one.

      Our schooldecided to make it “easy” for the parents this year. For

      only$55, they would purchase everything your child would need for the entire

      year,taking the “stress off of the parent of trying to find just the

      rightcolor or size of what every” (Prang only watercolors, Crayola

      onlycrayons, etc)


      Excuse me…..$55????ÂÂPer child????


      Not on ourbudget! There is no way. The teachers really are out so much

      onschool supplies that is not provided by the schools. Her home roomteacher

      last year kept receipts of supplies and money she was out and she toldme it

      totaled over $250 just in one year.ÂÂ


      Wal-mart (I knowthere are those of you that hate to shop there), Big Lots,

      Staples, OfficeDepot…all those places usually run really good sales. I

      have a tonof spirals I bought from Staples for $.05 each last year.ÂÂ


      Also, there areseveral churches (at least around here) that offer free school

      supplies, in acarnival and fun atmosphere. I know our church is collecting

      supplies todeliver to the poorer schools and they are having a mission trip to

      go to theseschools and actually work on getting the playground and the schools

      ready sothe kids have a safe and fun place to play. Sorry, back off topic,

      checkfor churches in your area if you are financially challenged. I would

      buywhat I could afford and forget the rest. I searched one year for

      Prangwater colors and finally found them. I paid almost $4 for them, and

      theynever even used the dang things! Now that I was ticked about.ÂÂ
