Back to school – love buying supplies
The State of Iowa now has a week-end every year that is tax free for back to school items. It gets a little crazy when you shop that weekend, so I usually take my girls shopping one day through the week to beat the crowds. I don’ t know why but I like going school shopping. They get so excited about the “new” supplies out. It doesn’t matter that we have 14 sets of watercolors, and left over notebooks, pencils with no erasers, and half used highlighters; we get new ones! I guess that’s my gift to get them excited to start school – new supplies!! Also, when you’re out shopping, pick up an extra pack of pencils for your childs teacher – they will really appreciate it!
