Have you made your way to Target or Wal-mart to do the BIG school supply shopping? Well, we did just the other day. I could have bought all these supplies through our local PTO. You pay them a nice little fee and your school supplies come boxed and ready for day one. No hassle, no worries, no fighting the other moms over the last set of watercolors that you have been looking all over town for.
But I like going to the store and making it a family event. This year was no exception.
Well, maybe just one exception. We broke the rules. Over a school supply box.
This is what we were suppose to buy. A plastic box. For less than a $1.00.
And this is what we ended up buying. A nice little metal box with lock and key. For $12.99.
Ooops. Out the door goes the budget. And in the door is a happy little girl with the perfect school supply.
