School Supplies

Sometimes, in our good intentions to re-use school supplies from the previous year, our school supply cabinet can get a little ‘out of control’.  Now, at the beginning of the school season, before we head out to buy our supplies, we go through the supplies and see what will be kept and re-used and what will be donated.   Then it’s off to re-stock.  Of course kids love to get new things – who doesn’t?!  But it is nice to be able to knock some of the items off the list because we already have them.  I usually buy extras such as the glue sticks, pencils – naturally, and folders to keep on hand.  I realize these can be purchased at any time of the year, but when it’s back to school shopping time, these items are so inexpensive it’s silly not to get them to keep on the ready.
