And I'm not bitching. My fiancés oldest is in high school so he will get a supply list the first day but this is the list for his youngest child. I was actually worried it was going to be expensive but that list is fairly cheap.

Where do y'all think I can get this the cheapest? Is walmart still the cheapest or can I get a good deal at staples or Office Depot?

I am never impressed with school lists. Surely you already have most of that stuff around the house already. That is how you save money;reuse things.

That actually looks like it IS for just one kid.

Kudos to your school.

I hear staples is the place to go. Going tomorrow - hope all the sales are not done already.

You never need everything on the first day. I'm sure you can buy batteries for the calculator when they actually die.

After elementary school, I always wait on some stuff anyway. Individual teachers always have specific things they want that are different than the generic list.

My dd is going into 7th grade this year and her list is way bigger then that.

Actually we don't because my son who lives with us full time gets to enjoy his extra school supplies over the summer. If and when we start having to pay 100 bucks or more per kid we may change that though.

But it's also nice to send the kids with new things. New Year, new start. It's not a lot to supply

I'm sure there will be more but at the same time his kids go to a school district where most of the kids are on free or reduced lunch so they have to tailor the supply list to the majority.

And before anyone jumps on us because of the school district. Their mother moved them from the school district we are in to the one they are in now. That wasn't our decision and fighting her on it wouldn't have done much good.

Not sure what the problem is. That looks like an extremely reasonable and affordable list.

There isn't a problem with it.

When I was in school my mom sent me off with a pencil and trapper keeper lol. Parents didn't have to provide supplies.
