Summers Out, Schools In!

For everyone who is still a student, has kids in school or is even a teacher, summer has flown by! It’s amazing how fast these few months fly by, especially if your summer is just as busy as the school year!

Parents, kids, and teachers are all trying to get the supplies they need, rooms set up, lessons planned and a whole lot of other last minute details. It is that time of year where we are all stressed about making sure we are ready for the school year!


Teachers scurry to get their classrooms set up, making sure they have enough books for their students, making sure everything is organized, making sure projectors work, etc.


Many parents are making sure their kids have backpacks, uniforms, all the supplies the teacher requests among the basic school supplies.

Parents also need to make sure there is a bussing service for the kids to school. Where I live, 15 public/private schools bussing was taken away and they are now bus-less 2 weeks before school starts!

School supplies isn’t always cheap, you have to find those deals at the stores, which isn’t always easy. Staples, a big office supplies store, has great deals going on where some things are less than $1! I have never seen school supplies this cheap! Walmart is another big chain super store, I was able to grab a few “Pean&Gear” brand things for under $5! We don’t really want to spend a fortune on a notebook that will eventually get used up and then tossed in the trash, that’s why we try to find great deals where you won’t feel terrible about throwing away 100 or so pages.

My Experience:

As for me, I was able to get all my school supplies from Walmart! When I ship, I typically don’t shop there, but stumbled across deals I couldn’t pass up! I was able to get all my supplies there for under $20! I am surprised it wasn’t more than that. If I had gone to staples, my total cost would been at least double the cost if not less.
