When do you start shopping for school supplies? We do our shopping a week before Meet the Teacher day. I think that’s usually the time when stores put there very competitive pricing out for consumers to get advantage of.
I also do online shopping for school supplies. There was one time a store offered free shipping on a minimum order. I browsed that store and found some wide-ruled composition notebooks for cheap, crayons, colored pencils, and plastic folders. I added some office supplies for my husband to meet the minimum price set for free shipping. In this super hot summer in Texas, going out to shop is not quite exciting for me. I would rather do online shopping in the comfort of my home.
So I finished all of my school supplies shopping. I always make sure darling daughter’s school supplies for the new school year is complete before meeting her new teacher. If there is something needed for later, it will be easy.
