On Saturday, DD and I went shopping and found out the places we can get an educators discount! We got one at BAM! and they constantly ask "are you using this in the classroom?" The whole world is our classroom, we can use anything and everything! That seems to be 20-25% off, not sure exactly it seemed different on different things. We got a rebate kind of card at Staples, I think it's 5% back to spend in the store. And we used our letter from the school district for 15% off at Michaels.
We got some good stuff and I don't think I really need to buy anything else!
I requested 18 books and 2 dvd's from the library (is that normal?!) just for History for the first two weeks!
And the kids spent the day today with DH buying wood, measuring, cutting, and drilling...building us a homeschool bookcase! Then the kids and I spent some time stocking the book case and organizing their cool new supplies my brother and his gf bought them for their birthdays! (They seriously thought the big bins of supplies was the best gift ever!)
Do your kids love school supplies? Are you ready for school?? (I know lots of you already start, or never stopped!)
