  • I think she may have meant "start" rather than "star"

  • Yeah...walmart has crayons and glue for 15 cents here. 1 subject notebooks are 5 cents each. You better believe I'm stocking up here and there when I have a few extra bucks.

    You might want to call the Salvation Army in your area, here they help with school supplies.

  • Go to Office Max this week. 1 penny for crayons. .25 for an entire box of erasers. .20 for scissors.
    Then go to Target. Pencil cases are .50, 4 glue sticks for 20 cents, pack of 5 spiral note books for 60 cents, tissues .33, rose art paints are .50, construction paper is .88 for a big pack. You should be able to get it all around five bucks if you shop around.
    For clothes why don't you look at Old Navy's clearance racks this week. This week they're doing 50% off the lowest price on all of the clearance. I got two skirts today for $3.49

  • contact your local dhs & health depts for a list of low income family resources. if your indian some tribes offer an allowance for back to school clothes & free school supplies. until then hit the garage sales, thrift sores, clearance racks, craigslist, ebay, & check out your hometown church for any donation clothing. if you have kids in a 3yr old or 4yr old program @ headstart they can help you alot w/ financial assistance.

  • For SAISD you can contact Stella Garza for supplies and uniforms. She can refer you to two different programs. 210-223-1506
