This morning I reluctantly pulled out my son’s school supply list. I’ve had it since June but pretended like it wasn’t real. It made me want to cry. I’m trying to soak up every last minute of summer while surviving the 12-hour days I often spend alone with the kids. The last thing I have the energy to do is run around to five different stores scoping out deals on crayons.
And so friends, I am confessing that I am going to Amazon.com and buying all the school supplies on my list that aren’t already in my cupboard. I’m a deal blogger. I am supposed to have a stockpile of these things. I’m not supposed to spend more than $.10 on Dixon Ticonderoga pencils. I’m supposed to get free Ziploc bags and Kleenex.
But I just can’t handle it this year. I’m going to go crazy and hit the $25 needed to get a deal on Add-On Items and check every single thing off that list. Today! And then I’m going to take my kids swimming and feed them more hot dogs. Be free from mama guilt friends! I’m also still wearing the clothes I had on yesterday and it’s 11am. Just in case that makes you feel better also.
If you also can’t manage the stores this year, here are some of the deals I found on school supplies at Amazon.
