I just finished most of my school supply shopping today.
I went to Staples for a backpack, which was $42. and then the same one at Target for $30. Go figure!

I got the one at Target, got buyer's remorse and went to the LLBean website. With free shipping, I got a better quality backpack for $29.00!

Did anyone look to see how much the binders were a Staples? They are buy 3 get one free. I was at Walmart and went ahead and bought some there but if it ends up being a good deal I will get some for late on since the binders do not hold up anymore for a whole year.
Thanks. If my walmart has the same price on Crayola, then I'll just return my Rose Art crayons.

dd's kindergarten list

Kindergarten School Supplies

* 3 boxes crayons (16 pack only - not 64 etc..)
* 1 box of thick markers
* 1 big pink pencil eraser
* 1 package #2 pencils (10-12 count)
* Beach towel
* 2 four-packs of glue sticks
* 2 everyday pocket folders
* Book bag able to fit pocket folder & library book
* Gym bag
* Reusable lunch container
* 2 large boxes of facial tissues
* 1 box Bandaids
* 2 containers of wet wipes

I bought 24 count crayons. They were a buck cheaper than 16 count. They can lump it and take 8 crayons out of each box if they want

I don't know what 'everyday' folders are either...dd wants hello kitty.

hedgehog2owl ... I am surprised they are asking for hand sanitizer.. here where I live, they do not want the kids carrying that. They feel (especially the little ones) can get sick if it gets in their mouth...
Also, why do they ask for a beach towel in the K class? I have never heard of that before

many times, the beach towel is used as a nap mat. easy to take home each friday and wash. my DD had to have a cloth nap mat in kindergarten.

Also what does easy rebate mean? Does it work like a regular rebate where I pay the price then wait for a rebate? Last year I bought some stuff and the rebate was done at the cash register so i only paid the after rebate price.

I was at Staples earlier today and the teacher limit is 25.

hmmm about the hand sanitizer...I *think* the teacher keeps it in her closet and they use it at the start of school and before going home. They did the same thing at her pre-k (they all lined up and teacher squirted their hands one by one) so maybe it is a regional thing here?

re: the beach towel- they have a pool and the towel is for the swimming lessons they do during PE

I make my dd carry her own first aid kit, because of her latex allergy.

Sorry, I don't mean anything by this post. No idea why I posted it.

I think some Walmarts have them for 30 cents but for a possible extra nickel Crayola is SOOOO much better!!! THe Rose Art is very waxy and they do not look good in art projects.

I will have to go back to walgreens for the filler paper. I still need 16 glue sticks for dd but Im waiting to see if target goes any cheeper than what I paid for them at walgreens at .59 for two.. I also will wait for the crayons at target instead of driving all the way out to walmart.. at least the sales are starting..
