My 5 year old is starting Kindergarten this year *tear*. Today I went to do her supply shopping (she doesn't start until the 22nd) and I was really proud of myself!
Minus her back pack, I managed to buy almost everything on her list (forgot colored pencils and Kleenex) for 22 bucks!! I didn't even have to get the generic stuff. I scoped all the sales last night and found some great deals. I am feeling very accomplished right now! The school supply kits that our pto sells were 50$ and I will end up spending much less including her back pack!
How much are you planning (or already) on spending on school supplies?
