Back to School Time!!!

I love Back to School time but not for the reason some of you may think.  Okay, it is nice to get the kids back to school and into a routine, but I love "Back to School Time" for one reason alone - school supplies are on sale.  It takes me back to when I was in grade school and I used to get a new pencil box each year for school.  I remember in second grade getting a plastic pencil box that had a picture of the United States on the front and the capitol of each state was listed.  I memorized those capitols from looking at that pencil box over and over.  Ah, happy times.

I stock up on baking supplies during the holidays and I stock up on pens, pencils, post it notes, paper, and notebooks during " Back to School Time."  Better yet, wait up to two weeks after school has started and those supplies go on clearance.  Every household needs these supplies so I always make sure I buy a year's supply for our household and also for our son's school needs. 

This time of year is almost like the beginning of a new calendar year.  I feel like getting organized, I feel like tackling some projects and I just feel happy.  I'm happier this year as my son is a Senior and he doesn't have to take math this year.  Yippee!!!

i am a bit of an addict when it comes to Stationery, luckily I now work for a printing company so I am the proud owner of enough pads and pens to last me for the rest of my life.
