Confessions of a stationary-aholic

It's the most wonderful time of the year.....

Back to school time!!!!

Seriously, that commercial just cracks me up so much. 

This year, I don't have to think of some really random and stupid excuse to wander the aisles of back to school stuff. This year I have a kid going to school. *tiny little tear*

I mean, last year he was at the preschool at the school he's going to this year. He had a supply list, but it didn't include much fun things.  (it had wipes, kleenex, change of clothes, markers, you know, kind of boring stuff) This year includes notebooks, duotangs, markers, pencil cases, oh my I could go on and on.

Ok, so he really did need the pretty purple composition book. I know that he just needs that for kindergarten. I got him his fancy 1/2 plain 1/2 lined notebooks. But I just know that in a month he's going to need a 4 pack of fully lined notebooks in different colors. OF COURSE HE IS!!!!!  And multicolored pens!?!?!?! YES!!!

But seriously, I have a problem. We definitely bought more supplies then needed. Especially since last year I bought him a pencil case with pencils and cool erasers.... That he never used. meh. And this year, instead of buying it all in one shot, I'm breaking up the buying. Because, well, I'm cheap. So I've been watching for sales. But, this is a good thing. Instead of wandering the aisles once, I get to do it over and over again!!! (I'm already at 3 times, and we still have stuff on the list and 2 weeks left.)  

Stationary-aholics unite!!! join me in our pen clicking paper sniffing ways!!!!!  (Not that I do that.....) Embrace your love for all things back to school. Ride carts singing "It's the most wonderful time of the year" Rejoice with me!!!!! If you're looking for me, I'll be at Staples. Maybe doing this...
