DD is starting kindergarten and they have cummunial school supplies.  I think it is pretty common.

I intend to go out and buy crayons, markers, color pencils, and a ruler, some construction paper, plain white paper, ruled paper, a pencil sharpener, and some normal #2 pencils.  DH says I am being sillyand we won't need all that, but to me it seems really basic school supplies for home, to do homework and projects with.

So what supplies do you keep at home for homework and projects and stuff?  How do you organize it?

The only homework DS (going into 2nd grade) has had is reading, math and a coloring page. We have never needed anything more then crayons and pencils which I always have anyways. I always buy the spiril notebooks too when they are on sale. We use those a lot.

you really do not need all that at home for kindergarten. Crayons, maybe. A pencil, yes. But that's it. 

We have all that stuff regardless tho bc we do alot of arts n crafts.

All the basics. Pencils, crayons, markers, glue, scissors, ruler, and paper. They are in the same cabinet as all the coloring stuff. When dd is older (she's 7) it will all go upstairs in the desk in her room, maybe even this year if she can prove she can be responsible and keep them organized.

I've never bought any extra supplies for the house. We already have that stuff lying around.
