Same here. Just starting to put up supplies, but not the crayola crayons I wanted. I think I am going to try another WalMart.

There are only a few things that I need this year!!! I thought I needed the bound composition books for dd but I found 4 brand new ones in the trunk of my car that I got at 90% off at CVS last year!!! I have one of those huge xxl Ziplock bags in my office at ny school full of most of the things dd will need.

Will need a new binder, new scissors,post it notes, and more loose leaf notebook paper. Also some pens because this will be the first year she will need ink pens. We both need new pencils...I only like Bic mechanical pencils!!!

Are the Walmart prices only this week or will the sale continue? Our sales circular states until 7/11, but these seem like the usual Walmart sales prices.

Can anyone give me an idea on what is expected for 3rd graders? My school doesnt have it listed on their website and we do not get the list until the week before school starts.

I woudn't buy anything until you hear from your actual school. It will save you money in the long run to wait. Teachers are getting so particular about the color/brand of things that it's not worth it to buy ahead and maybe get the wrong thing. My DD's school list was even broken down by gender. Boys had certain things to get/girls had others!

Does anybody have their first and second grader's lists. I need to buy for two kids, not my own, and I do not have a list and cannot get one. The school does not have a list. This is a very poor school district, so that maybe why the school does not have or do a list. This is a surprise, so I cannot ask for a list from the guardian. TIA

These lists seem to get more and more out of control every year, does anyone ever buck the trend and just buy what they want with the exception of obviously needed items like calculators? I wasted a ton of money on multiple 1 in binders last year for my son for high school. He NEVER used them, he used his 2 in with the dividers. I get tired of being told to buy really off the wall stuff like a green bic pen when they are all lost halfway through the year and my kids seem to function just fine.

Thanks for the info for 3rd graders. I realize our teacher may have some other specific requests but at least I can get the stuff that is so cheap and then if we do not end up needing it with our list I am not out much. One year we needed the pink erasers and I missed the special and had to pay a fortune for them. Does anyone know if Staples is doing their penny sales this year? Also, regarding the 2nd grade list - I will look tonight to see if I still have mine from last year and will post it for you if I do.

We buy my step daughter's supplies every year but their school hasn't posted a list yet. They will be in 7th grade, does anyone have a 7th grade list yet?
