  • I buy stuff as it comes on sale - things like crayons, markers, stuff that we'll use at home too I buy a ton of when they're cheap. Other stuff I tend to wait til closer to school starting - early August or something.

  • We were excited anyway about starting kindergarten that we shopped way early. he has his supplies, shoes, backpack and uniforms. i bought them bigger on purpose because I knew he would have grown an inch or two before school.
