For me is that time of the year when I start getting things ready for a new school year… But this year is particularly different.
My son, a teenager heading to 8th grade now (
where the time has gone!!) will be getting ready for high school it means that this year is going to be an expensive one!!! He will need money for Graduation and parties amount other stuffs that were mention in the list I received at the end of last school year.
Saving on school supplies is one of the goals now, because if I have money for one thing I may not have for the other.
Let’s start with what he needs right away
My son is a teenager so, find clothes in regular basis if a bit annoying (
sorry, son). Sometimes He is too big for kid’s clothes and sometimes too small for adult sizes, so we have to take serious time while searching for uniforms this year.
Yes, backpack because last years backpack when through hell and back.. lol
I really don’t understating what is that they have to carry in those backs that make them so heavy, my Goodness!!! Any way, His current backpack can’t last one more year… I tell you, backpacks are not cheap and more when you have to find a heavy-duty so it can last the entire year.
3. School Essentials
These are our every year essentials: Notebooks, ruler, calculator, pens and most importantly pencils. Right? this is like the “normal” for every parent to search for every single school year.
For some particular reason that I still yet to figure it out, my keeps loses his pencils… uuuuugghhh!! That kills me!!. But this year I know he is not going to miss place any pencil. Why?, because this year he is getting BIG VELOCITY pencils.
What is new on this BIG mechanical pencils is that has a stronger lead, double erasers, is very smooth and has soft comfortable grip. I love the bright new colors.
I already got mine to write the notes for my posts. Sharing is caring!!! 🙂
Did you start the back to school shopping? How do you plan to tackle this years school list?
