It's back to school time, which means that we have been hitting up the sales to round out our homeschool supplies. I have a bookcase that is full of homeschool essentials like markers, crayons, pencils, scissors, paper...lots and lots of paper...glue etc. I try to keep our bookcase fairly stocked throughout the year, so that we have lots of items within our grasps when the need to create arises. I usually do one big stock up around back to school time, since that is when the stores are really slashing prices...which I always love :) I then will replace things as needed throughout the year, but the main goal is to get as much as I can when things are at rock bottom prices to last us the whole year.
Here is a video I made after a trip to the Dollar tree. We found a bunch of stuff to stock our bookcase with and the kids have already started creating with a lot of these items.
How do you stock up on school essentials?
