Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

I decided I was going to jump out and do this today. I should have waited until the tax free weekend, but I always hit the store too late and never can find enough boxes of Crayola 24 count crayons. Then Pato ends up hitting Wal-mart after work every night until they get a new truck of school supplies.
That’s the list above. Three kids in school. Seventh grade, third grade, and kindergarten. The 7th grader is the most expensive with his multiple binders, latex gloves, flash drive, and calculators. He already has a scientific calculator, the graphing calculator is optional, and his flash drive from last year works for me still.
I hit Wal-Mart and Target.
Someone needs to learn how to shop the ads. I did find 10 cent glue sticks and 17 cent notebooks. Yippie! I can say everything I got was on sale, just not on sale enough for my happiness.
And there you have it. Three kids packed up and ready to go to school and one upset cuz he isn’t getting a backpack like his older siblings.
One would think I was done after all that.
Nope. A couple of things I forgot and a few I left until later.
I still need:
1- 5 subject notebook
1-12 ct Crayola colored pencils
5 boxes of Kleenex
3 bottles of hand sanitizer
1 box sandwich size ziplock bags
1 box gallon size ziplock bags
3 dry erase markers
2 black sharpie markers
I’m not sure how the list of stuff I brought home was so huge when I forgot that much.
Now it’s my dear husband’s turn to buy school clothes.
Next year I ad watch and coupon cut!
Have a great day!
