School supplies are in stores now!?!

So, are you purchasing school supplies in June?

**Just when I finally want to use the "back to school" category, it's gone... :P...OK "shopping" it is.

  • DS saw a back to school commercial last week. He started yelling at the tv like a little old man.

  • Stores get their Christmas stock in July, so likely they need the room. Since July 4th isn't a big merchandise month, school it is!

  • lol I didn't notice it was gone lol.
    I still have some of the supplies that I bought last year. I usually wait for the sales to start up but I am not a fan of black Friday so I never wait that long.
    I am more than happy to hand out some cash and let someone else go. lol
    Yup the lists came out in our email at the beginning of the week.

  • I'll probably buy a few things at a time each week, since the supply list for going to kindergarten is gigantic. I don't remember needing all this crap to go to school. Not just pencils and crayons, either. Camera film, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, Scotch tape, three boxes of Kleenex, etc, etc.

  • Actually I have subbed in class that had the tennis balls and you can not imagine the difference in the noise level.

    Camera film kind of cracks me up. I am still trying to figure that one out.

  • Some schools start as early as July.

    I'll have to begin shopping in July for school supplies. We start early August.

    I LOVE back to school shopping - all those new school supplies... drool. I'm bad about overbuying though, so this year I need very little unless I find something I just can't live without.
