So the supply lists are out for elementary students. I decided to plow ahead and shop while the supplies are not picked over. I headed to Walmart, knowing from experience that the supplies would be the cheapest there.
The list is shocking for KINDERGARTEN! I suppose we are really buying for the entire year. Three boxes of markers? I'm sure the teacher puts them in a supply closet and will hand them out throughout the year. Boxes of kleenex, Clorox wipes, jumbo bottle of hand sanitizer, TWELVE glue sticks, 2 boxes of snacks (probably for the class), etc.
$60+ later.... including the two items that weren't at Walmart. OfficeMax had them.
