If you don't know what I am talking about, click here.
I spent a grand total of $44.32 before taxes.
Since it would have cost me $120 to buy the pre-packaged boxes from the PTA, I ended up saving about $70.
I know everyone that bought the boxes will say....well, what about gas. Well, I would have gone to all of the stores anyway except a trip to Office Depot and a wasted trip to a Walgreens so, take away an other 50 cents and we'll call it even.
I was doing AWESOME with the school supplies, but got hung up on the zip-lock bags and the baby wipes. Of course, those didn't go on sale like the other stuff did, or I just missed it. But, really, I think that if baby wipes went on sale for 9 cents, someone would have called me. The Expo markers were also a pain. Not only are they really expensive, but they are hard to find and the boys each needed 8 of them...ouch!
So, I guess I know what Charlie and I will be doing with our first free week while the boys are in school....spending an extra $70. ;)
