I remember taking my children to Target or WalMart when the school supply list came in the mail. It was early August. I’m sure there’s some reading who are thinking: didn’t they just put in on-line. On no, this was back in the dark ages, the 1990’s. Supply lists were mailed to us. It was very exciting for my girls and we would make a big day of the shopping experience. School supplies, lunch boxes, backpacks and all the rest. There was always at least 1 item that we had to go to at least 3 stores before we found it. It was usually the red correcting pencils that were only at the office supply stores.
