Back to School supplies

Posted Thursday, August 11, 2011, at 9:49 AM


Here's another one from Yahoo.com. Do my kids really need all the items listed on the Back to School supply list and do they need to be brand new? We have a school supply drawer at home. At the end of every year, I clean out book bags and dump it all in the drawer. It's about this time of year that I dump the drawer out, organize it, and check off our list any items that we already have. Recycling at its finest. And truthfully, there are some things on those lists that I believe my children just don't need for school. What are some of your ideas for alleviating the cost of back to school?

I recycle also, Come on how many boxes of crayons do you really need,my child s look like they have NEVER been used. I understand we need to supply some things for school, but not 8 boxes of Kleenex, 1 gallon of hand sanitizer. 4 tubes of Clorox wipes.

My name is Leah Cauthron. I was born and raised on a farm near Cushing, Iowa. My parents still live there. I am a conservative Catholic. I have been married to Randy for 22 years and we have six children. I received my degree in Criminal Justice from Eastern Wyoming College and as a mother of six and a daycare mom, I have used probable cause, reasonable doubt, search and seizure, Miranda rights, submission, arrest and interrogation technique as a part of my daily life. I can also shoot a .357 magnum with deadly accuracy. I have lots of opinions on lots of things. I am not an expert on anything but I read a lot and will gladly share that information if I find it accurate. I have a sarcastic nature and for the most part I have pretty thick skin and most things don't bother me for long. I don't like mudslinging or name calling so keep negativity of the personal nature to yourself. Enjoy and welcome to my opinion.
