Let the back-to-school shopping begin!
Wow, everything from erasers to three colors of ink pens, from scissors to notebooks are on the list. Don’t forget a box of Kleenex for the classroom and an apple for the teacher.
If you’ve purchased a new backpack for your student and added in the supplies, your receipts probably add up to well more than $100. And you still have to get new shoes and pay for a yearbook and a PTA membership.
