When looking at my kids school supply list, I got incredibly overwhelmed. It seems like the list gets longer and more expensive each year. I use to find myself going between stores, and trying to save a buck here and there. This year, I accepted the challenge to shop at Staples, and get it all done at once.
My kids range from Pre-K to 7th grade, and the list goes from as easy as erasers to a graphic calculator. I packed up all of the kids, and headed into town for a morning shopping trip. Lists in hand, and a mission on the mind, we started crossing items off of our lists pretty quickly. The kids seemed pretty excited about all of the items that they were getting, and I was excited about the prices!
To start this review off, I was sent a box of 14 items, totaling $8.74 + tax.
