I have a few dozen therapy supplies that need to be sorted out for my little one. Some she no longer needs but would enjoy others she is possessive of and still others we have not gotten to yet. It is time to organize them. Then there are the school supplies (namely uniforms) that I have to buy for the next school year.
I am attempting to set money aside to purchase them since she may grow between now and then. Uniforms are the worst thing that the school system ever did to my wallet, the teachers to do not wear the same attire as the children and I do not think that is fair. That is another story though. She’s going to need a new backpack to carry her extra clothes and work that is sent home from school in this year. Her backpack is in its second year of use and starting to look worn.
She needs dry erase markers for her white board, lined tablets to write on. (Still haven’t found the pages that you can print); new books to read and hopefully allow me to donate some of the older ones she has read to the clinic for other kids to enjoy. Then there is the tiny table she still fits out as she gets bigger she is going to need a desk to do her work at. I had one although I didn’t see much of it but that’s a long story.
I’m hoping that I don’t miss the sales this year for supplies. I really want to see the tax free weekend for buying her uniforms. I just need enough to get her through a week at a time so I can wash them all at once and be done with it. She has two pairs of pants, two jumpers and three polo shirts in addition to a few dozen pairs of shorts to wear to school this year. The shorts she can wear around the house when they get too worn to wear to school.
Crayons, construction paper, play dough and pencils alone with half a dozen other things add up very quickly. I better get back to work before I go broke thinking about them.
