It seems like school just ended, but now we're just a few weeks away from the fall semester.
I have a 5-year old that will start kindergarten on August 26th, and we're planning to do lots of shopping for school supplies and new clothes in August. It's exciting in some ways to start school, but it's expensive!
School supply lists in Lufkin can run about $50, and in some surrounding cities the totals for notebooks, pencils, glue, and all of the other necessities can push closer to $100. That's not the new Hello Kitty shirts and fancy tennis shoes. That total only includes the classroom supplies.
