Since the schools hurting for money these days, many of them are asking for more help from the parents. The first step in this process is the list we all receive of the supplies we must bring to school that first day… can you believe it… scissors are on the list!!! Plus, we don’t even get to label them; they all have to be shared. Well, sharing is an important concept, so we all try to cooperate. But, if you are not careful, the cost of these supplies can quickly add up.
The last couple of years I have discovered that in July, Wal-Mart provides a service to our community by offering up these types of supplies for truly pennies. 10 cents will buy you a whole box of crayons! Whether you have kids in school, run a day care or want to stock up on your home stash, go to Wal-Mart in July and save yourself some money!
