School Supplies Have Been Set!

So here’s the staple chart. These items represent what a typical family may have to buy for back to school. Sometimes there’s neat little things, teacher tools, or something else that I will include. Target and Wal-Mart appear to have set most of their school supplies. I devised this list so you could look and say “gee that’s a great deal on that”. Sadly my table version would have taken longer than my laziness would allow.

About schmeggo

Hi there and welcome to my little piece of web. I am a wife, a step mom,mom, and a teacher among other things. I am addicted to school supplies and getting things for as little as possible. During July and August I spend Sundays coming the papers and stalking my local Staples trying to find items at prices that I can get over 120 of them. During the school year, this is a personal blog of educational interest. I am by no means an expert on education and child rearing, but through trial and error, I hope we can help each other out. Whether you are buying for one or one-hundred, kindergarten to college, I hope that my little web space can help you find something trendy or cheap to make back to school on any day easier.
