I don't know about you, but I am pretty bad about remembering to stock up with sales throughout the year on school supplies.  Then all of a sudden, it's August and I've ran out of time... school is starting SUPER SOON. Here, we have just 2 weeks.  I was about to just give up, because I become completely frazzled trying to take all 4 kids out shopping. I don't want to do anything the hard way. Then I remembered that Amazon has really fast shipping and everything I need to get is on there!  PERFECT for last minute back to school shopping!
Your child's supply list is usually on the school district's website.  It varies depending on grade level, but if in doubt, start with the basics:
• backpack
• lunchbox
• 24 sharpened #2 pencils
• 2 pocket folders
• 2 spiral notebooks
• 1 pencil bag/box
• 1 composition notebook
• 1 pack loose-leaf paper
• 2 blue pens & 2 black pens
• 2 ct. package of dry erase markers
• 2 pink erasers
• 2 glue sticks
• 1 highlighter
• 24 ct. box crayons
• 8 ct. package of washable markers
• 1 three inch, three ring binder
• facial tissues
• hand sanitizer
Here are my top 10 GREEN picks for the 2016 school year!
Jansport Superbreak Backpack Multi Stickers by Jansport. This print is so fun and reminds me of doodles I used to draw in school! These backpacks are GUARANTEED for life, so you don't have to buy another backpack again.
