Make Your School Supplies Last Longer

by: Karen Humphrey

Don’t send all your kid’s school supplies with them the first day.  Many times the glut of school supplies is overwhelming and things are put in a big pile, or lost.  Send in the immediate necessities, but hold back some glue sticks, pencils, pens, and paper to help top it up later in the year.  Older kids, when faced with a glut of supplies, have a tendency to waste or even destroy them.
