Do you buy extra school supplies when they are on sale?
If I find a really good deal on an item I buy more than what is listed on their list. It never fails that they need replacement supplies towards the end of the school year.
absolutely! Last year it was a good thing too because I had an internet friend who was horribly upset that she couldnt get her kids all htat they needed. I was able to fill her 2 kids lists with the exception of post it notes (which DH decided to go buy them) from my stash. This year my friend who is getting divorced could use the help. Thinking I might send a goody box to my friend from last year. Plus we always need notebooks, pens, paper and glue for one thing or another.
I always did too. I think I can finally stop buying some of them too now. as they are getting older some of those supplies are not necessary and I have a ton still that I'll probably donate. paper, pens, staples stuff I use at our home business as well as my office here so I'm always looking for deals on them.
