School Supplies

I don't make a big deal about back to school shopping for clothes or supplies. Even though school supplies are on sale, the stores are crowded this time of year, and I know the items we might need will be on clearance soon. I can't remember the last time I needed to buy lined paper - over the past few years, we've been given so many packages of it that I doubt we'll ever use it all! Most of the school supplies we need I just pick up over the course of the year whenever the need arises. Things we keep in stock and use are:

pencils and pens
printer paper
printer ink
3-ring notebooks and folders
stapler, pencil sharpener, 3-hole punch
spiral notebooks
colored pencils, paints, pastels, etc
sketch pads, tracing paper, art papers of all kinds
flash drives and CDs for saving writing assignments and digital resources
plastic bins and crates for storage
student logbook or calendar
reference books and resources

And let's not forget... our library card!!

Whenever I feel a little overwhelmed and under-prepared, I remind myself that we already have ALL of the above in stock, basically well-organized, and ready to go! Quite an accomplishment for this procrastinating, organizationally-challenged homeschool mom! Let the games begin!

Do you have all the resources and supplies you need? Leave a comment and let me know!
