Obviously this doesn't apply to areas where everyone gets "free" supplies at school paid by tax money.
In DS's program, 4th, 5th and 6th use the same basic list, with just some variations added for each grade. All his folders from last year, plus 2 notebooks he never even used (they require 5 in 5 specific colors), flash drive, highlighters and binder went back. He has a whole supply of pencils that came home in goody bags or attached to awards, so he took those with, and we only replaced his earbuds because the ones he had last year were one size only and too big for him. This year we purposely found a set that had interchangeable ear pieces with a smaller size.
In the end, we only had to replace a few of the notebooks that actually were used last year, index cards, dry erase markers, and the usual loose leaf paper, kleenex and ziplog bags everyone has to send.
