I know, I know just seems like yesterday the kids finished school..!!!! BUT I am sure you might be secretly excited that they are going back to school soon. Yes we love our kids but days of ‘what are we doing today?’ ‘where are we going today?’ Can be a little crazy and very expensive sometimes.
Anyway it is now time to start thinking about getting the school supplies for your kids to go back to school. Here are some lists to help you along with Back to School Essentials For Every Grade..
Getting ready for back to school can be lots of fun (oh and a little expensive). My daughter loves planning what she has to get researching it, finding it online and sometimes we end up going to the physical store as she quite likes to look and feel things, whereas my son doesn’t really care if he has any items for to take to school!!!! he leaves it all up to me and I usually just buy his online as I don’t like shopping with crowds, especially around back to school time nope not a fan…
I do try to recycle lots of items as we have so many pencil cases full of pens so I refuse to spend more money on new pens when we have perfectly working pens at home. My kids are fine with that although my daughter will always try to buy a pretty looking pen lol
I also try and get them to use their backpacks from previous years as they are usually perfectly fine or they may have got 1 as a gift for Christmas
