I know, I know. You are probabaly saying “It’s only July for goodness sake!”. I totally get it, HOWEVER, back to school time will be here before you know it. Why not get a jump on it and give yourself a little head start? I realize that you can drive to your local big box store and grab the kiddo’s supplies there but then he or she will have all of the same exact supplies as their school mates.
