School is just around the corner.  Are you ready?  New clothes, physicals, immunizations, eye exams and school supplies.  These can all add up.  Though it seems simple enough to get the basics, advertisements add that spot of difficulty where you have to get the most popular items so you are not the outcast!  Students who have the basics often feel left out when their classmates have the trendy items or clothes.  Keeping your children grounded is often a problem in today’s society.  If your first grader does not have their own cell phone they can often be met with ridicule from others.  Someone please explain to me why a first grader needs a phone! 

Parents, please read the following – children do not need the most popular items to be successful.  You being there for your children is what they need.  Now that I have that said, let’s discuss school supplies.  Schools often publish supplies on their websites and some stores have the lists printed out.  I have found that the lists published on the school’s website is more reliable. 

Elementary School
Elementary school supplies are the easiest to obtain.  The list is very detailed and many schools want these supplies brought to school on the first day.  Schools will often do the communal supplies.  This covers the children who have parents that either will not buy supplies or cannot afford supplies.   Many parents get upset and complain about supplying others with these supplies, but get over it.  There are many more supplies that come from the teacher’s bank account and parents have no clue!  I added up what I spent one year and it totaled over $1,000 dollars, but I got to write 250 dollars off in taxes!
