Do your kids have a crazy list of school supplies?

This year my kids do. They will be going to a private school instead of the public school. See 1st and 2nd reply for list of supplies.

  • Is it really nec. to have all of that at the very begining! Do you know how much of that theyre gonna lose, or someone will borrow and not return. I wish school supplies could be based on the nec. ONLY! and let the school provide a little more! back to school is SO expensive. Not looking forward to that aspect of it!

  • Nope... Our school supplies just about everything. For small kids they need a note book and pencil. For middle & highschool it varies depending on the classes and needs of each of them... But it's still rare that it's anything beyond a few folders, notebooks and pens or pencils...

  • That's a lot of glue sticks! My kids aren't in school yet so I have nothing to compare to for a few more years lol.

  • We homeschool so we just buy a few things when they're on sale and it gets us through the year.

  • Wow! I won't receive my son's list until the week before school, but his kindergarten list from last year was no where near that long!

  • Seriously, I think I've had the same glue stick for 5 years lol.

    Answer by Xynyth at 9:41 PM on Jul. 23, 2010

  • I'd like to know what the heck they need all that stuff for. When I was in kindergarten, we needed a box of crayons, pencils, a pair of scissors and a pencil box. When my kids were in private school, just a couple of years ago, all they needed for kindergarten was scissors, crayons, pencils, a pencil box, glue sticks, 50 counters and Kleenex.
