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 Ã¢Â€ÂœeasyÃ¢Â€Â for the parents this year.Ã‚Â For
only$55, they would purchase everything your child would need for the entire
year,taking the Ã¢Â€Âœstress off of the parent of trying to find just the
rightcolor or size of what everyÃ¢Â€Â (Prang only watercolors, Crayola
Excuse meÃ¢Â€Â¦..$55????Ã‚ÂPer child????
Not on ourbudget!Ã‚Â There is no way.Ã‚Â The teachers really are out so much
onschool supplies that is not provided by the schools.Ã‚Â 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.Ã‚Â
Wal-mart (I knowthere are those of you that hate to shop there), Big Lots,
Staples, OfficeDepotÃ¢Â€Â¦all those places usually run really good sales.Ã‚Â I
have a tonof spirals I bought from Staples for $.05 each last year.Ã‚Â
Also, there areseveral churches (at least around here) that offer free school
supplies, in acarnival and fun atmosphere.Ã‚Â 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.Ã‚Â Sorry, back off topic,
checkfor churches in your area if you are financially challenged.Ã‚Â I would
buywhat I could afford and forget the rest.Ã‚Â I searched one year for
Prangwater colors and finally found them.Ã‚Â I paid almost $4 for them, and
theynever even used the dang things!Ã‚Â Now that I was ticked about.Ã‚Â
