Every since I was a young girl, I have always loved shopping for back to school supplies.
In my family there were 5 kids. My Mom had to save all summer for this.
It was always a big deal picking out a new outfit and getting supplies.
So when it came time to buy back to school supplies for my kids, I always tried to make it a special day.
I always feel bad for the kids whose mom is going down the aisle stressed and complaining.
That mom just doesn’t get it. (she’s probably the mom who’s complaining in June)
Now that my son is in High School, back to school shopping isn’t quite the same.
But…I still stop and check things out.
l stock up on glue sticks, theme books and any little thing that I think I can use for my crafting
endeavors. (I still have lined notebook paper and folders from several years ago.)
For my Favorite Things Album, I picked up some inexpensive index cards for .48 at Wal-Mart.
When binding my book, I allowed enough space for two rows of cards.
Now, I can list favorite recipes, books, quotes. (anything goes)
