I have to say that if it's something like a backpack, lunch box, or anything else that they can use their preference, then i'll bring them but with other stuff...i need to do it by myself.  In and out as fast as I can.

I also use the list from the teacher.

i make a master from the 3 kid's lists and go alone too.. i don't have patience to wait while they decide between the blue and the green folder.. i just pick and move on. i got the whole list done in 40 min,, grades K, 4 and 7...

I combined all the items from both child's list and hit the store. My dh works so much that the kids are always with me, this was no different.

I order the school supply boxes through the PTO in the spring. The boxes are on their desk the night of open house.

I usually shop with my son. I made the mistake purchasing a bookbag he did not like it. This weekend my husband and I will take my son school shopping with the school list .

very cool !! do you fill out an order form or just opt in and pay upfront? i imagine this would be way cheaper cuz tey can order in bulk.. our school is large (800 kids) but i bet  a lot of people would love to skip shopping and just have supplies be there for the kids..
