I don't like the fact that I buy school supplies for my son that he prefers and likes. I will pay more for certain items with some things rather than buying the most generic. It irritates me when teachers take all the kids supplies on the first day, mixes them up and then passes them out. If my kids teacher wants to do that this year is it out of line to say : No, I bought this stuff for my son. Yes, it's her classroom, but it's my money I spent on my child.
