I was looking at the Sundaypapers and seeing the ads for the products "your kid really needs!" I was shocked! One of the "recommendations" was for a lunch pack that was over $65! It was four stackable cups that fit down inside a canister. hey could be used for microwaving or cool things. Another was for a $119 backpack.
Surely these things aren't typical?
no not typical! bought some writing paper for .10 at walmart for the deals but since I bought lots of workbooks at the closeout sale of the local teachers store dont' really need much. have so much stocked up from last year and kits from thrift stores that never got used yet. nice thing about the kids in homelearners only go to school for a couple days a week if that so backpacks and pencil bags last a long time.
Since there is a teachers strike going on and home learners is part of the public system who knows if I need anything more. Will just continue with my plans. Only need a science smart book for gr 7 for dd since the school didn't have it.
