we still have 4 more weeks before school start--i can't decide yet if that is a good thing or a bad thing. on the one hand, i think the kids need more structure in their day. on the other, i have three kids at three different schools and i'm not sure how this is going to work out...
time marches on, however, and school will start, whether i feel ready for it or not. the kids' back-to-school supplies lists get longer and longer each year. i'm thankful that sam's club has a lot of items that we need. by purchasing in bulk, i can get the things that all three kids need for a lot less money.
when i purchase supplies (either for the house or for school) at sam's club, i have the added advantage of getting extra "box tops" to give to the kids' schools. with three different schools to think about, we need a lot of box tops! since we don't have a lot of spare money in our budget to donate to the schools, i like to do what i can with the box tops.
during the month of august, sams club is promoting the box tops for education program by including 6 box tops on selected products, such as honey nut cheerios, nature valley oats 'n honey crunchy granola bars, and totino´s pizza rolls.
