Thank you to Common Sense with Money for gathering these. See her site for many more cool deals. I sincerely envy all you moms who gather this data for us all.
I don't know about your kids, but I seem to send my two off to school at the beginning of the year with about 50 types of school supplies each, and at the end of the year get a HUGE bag of these SAME supplies sent home, unused.
This drives me nuts! What a waste of everyone's time and money to buy these things specifically requested, only to never use them. Case in point: expandable velcro closing file folders. I had to buy two for my daughter. She never used either one. Can't return them. Or "48 pencils" when they never use more than 5 or 6 the entire year. Sure, I can and do recycle school supplies (you don't need a new ruler or scissors every year, and a glue stick still works if you used it twice), but THREE 3" binders? Who is going to need/want these?
