We still have more than a month left of school here in NYC. Still, some people are already thinking about next school year. I was excited to receive a letter in JP’s school bag not only with the school supply list for next year but with information on how to buy the supplies from ONE place.
I have fond memories of school supply shopping when I was a child. I loved the smell of the new crayon boxes and notebooks. I thought it would be especially fun this year to take both Inez and JP school supply shopping for the first time. JP was less than delighted. He has regularly declared his annoyance with going to any kind of store. And it seems to go without fail that when school supply shopping, you always end up leaving the store without a few items from your school supply list. So I was more than happy to pay online for a school supply kit with everything in it that JP needs for next year AND it will be delivered directly to his classroom. The prices are the same as if I bought the supplies in the store (it’s a Staples company that has this program). So it’s a double win.
Now that we are ready for school in September, we just have to figure out what to do for the month of August!
