My school supply confession

I love school supplies. Seriously back to school is my favorite season. Crayons for .25, notebooks for .50 and tons of pens all on sale. (I love buying pens). And i can't buy any of it. Well no reason to buy any of it.

I have one kid in school. She's going into 5th grade. The school she goes to provides supplies for grades up to 8th. All they ask you to buy is a backpack. So my confession.... I spent 50.00 on supplies that I'm going to donate to the local food shelf. (they do a back to school thing for low income families in other schools) My mom thinks I'm insane and it was a waste of money because I didn't need the stuff. Well no I don't but some other kid out there will. I did keep a few boxes of crayons for my 3 year old. My dog eats crayons like French fries....

I love school supplies too!

And I think it's awesome that you're going to donate stuff for a child that needs it.

I love them as well. I buy them all year since I homeschool. I even buy extra to donate. I love deals on school supplies.

I don't mind school supply shopping...we don't spend too much and I get everything usually in one visit.

It's the clothes & shoes I hate shopping for :/

This exactly! ! I hate the clothes shopping. 3 kids in school, all uniforms. At least it's not super strict uniform, jeans and a Polo shirt, but still expensive! !

Oh I do to! I bought 90 notebooks at staples last night for $0.17 a piece! I bought 30, sent my daughter thru with 30, and then hubby with 30. With them normally at least a dollar or more a piece any other time of the year I stocked up! Plus they had crayola markers for $0.97 each bought the max of those and a ton of other awesome deals! We now have a rubbermaid container full of supplies! But we will put them to use. But I also bought 2 backpacks because I adopted a family and bought both of those kiddos their school supplies.
