I now know why I had slim pickins in August last year once I received Valley Stream Daughter’s school supply list. Stores like Walmart, Staples, Target, and Office.Max schedule their school suppuration sales I’m July! The teachers are on vacation and are not even thinking about school right now. I don’t blame them because I don’t want to have to think about buying supplies, lunch boxes, back packs and school clothes right now either! Can’t we enjoy summer without being bombarded with Back to School Sales? Ha! Nope!
Now that I’m one year into this school thing, Valley Stream Daughter will be starting 1st grade in September, I’m already on top of it. Since I am FORCED to shop at Walmart until November, I grabbed last week’s circular and got busy. I.don’t have the class supply list yet but based on last year’s list I’m assuming that many of the items will.be the same. If not, I have 90 days to return the unopened items.
You can also donate any items you get in a BOGO sale (buy one get one free) to the YVA Jourdan Foundation who will then donate them to children who use Valley Stream’s Peninsula Counseling Services. Sip This has a donation box right at the front for the supplies.
Check out the deals I saw at Walmart. I must admit the deals werent bad. I’m still a Target girl and will always be.
Where/when do you buy your supplies?
