I think I look forward to shopping for school supplies even more than I enjoy Christmas shopping. The smell and feel of brand new crayons and folders and pencils, oh my! Last week we picked up a few. After I give you a peek at some of what we stocked up on this year, we’ll get to this week’s blog hop!
I was disappointed we really didn’t need much. With my children all being middle school age and older our shopping list looks a little different than it used to. Along with the basic paper, notebooks, pens type of supplies, I find myself shopping for things like these (yes, my affil. links, but you’ll these supplies anywhere you prefer to shop):
mini index cards on a jump ring — great for flash cards or fact cards, perfect for keep memory verses handy -they fit into a pocket or backpack
ear buds – really! more and more we have kids working lessons on the computer or listening to videos or music – everyone needs their own set in their own color, with a pair to spare!
tape, tape, tape – you can never have enough tape! scotch, washi, masking, duct …. always need tape!
and my beloved sharpie markers – we always have some of the colors around, but it’s the classic black markers you can never have too many of – I keep one in the kitchen for labeling leftovers and one near my mailing supplies and a few in the school room and one in my purse.
and my bonus resource – Mom’s planner – this is a classic, spiral bound day planner that I love and use and carry with me everywhere. It supplements, compliments our school planner – my Homemaker’s Friend for sure.
Now, for updates on last week’s blog hop. Our most viewed post was Living in the Wide Open Spaces. And my featured posts this week are:
