Last year, our local walmart was a mad house with people trying to get back to school supplies. A couple things on our list were sold out and I got a little stressed out about it. One lady at Walmart was almost having a break down and was yelling about her child's supplies being sold out as well. That made me stop and think.... these supplies are on the shelf all year round. Our supply list is no secret (we got a copy of next year's list the last week of school).
I think I am going to start picking up some of the stuff on our list now. Any one else doing supply shopping early??
For clothes though, I won’t be shopping until school ahs been in for a few weeks. The biggest consignment sale in the area is at the end of August (one THOUSAND sellers!) So, clothes and such will be bought then. Last year I got all three kids a each a wardrobe full of name brand and designer clothes for roughly $200 each child.
Yes, if you wait you'll save $. Crayons are usually .20-.25 a box, and markers go cheap too. Scissors, colored pencils, are all at bargain rates, and don't forget the glue!!! Target will give rain checks too so you don't need to rush, if something is missing. I'm not sure on Walmart's policies since I shop there less often.
