So, its time for back to school shopping again. I don't have an issue with the fact that my kids need school supplies, but I find that each year, these lists get more and more ridiculous. There are just some items on the list that I'm like, "Are you serious?"
It seems that the list gets longer and longer each time. My daughter is going into first grade, and one of the items listed is 450 white mailing labels. What?!
I'm not poor, but I'm not loaded either...so I usually end up buying what I feel are absolutely necessary basics, such as paper, pencils, folders, etc. My son is going to fourth grade and on his list are several boxes of ziploc bags, a 5star binder, one of those that costs over 10 bucks each.
I wonder how many people out there end up getting every single thing that are on these supply lists.
