You can't tell me that you didn't cringe at those words. And if you're like me, you just broke out in Adam Sandler's Back to School song from Billy Madison. No matter if you have kids in school, or if you yourself are still in school.... those words seem to sting a little.
And while the thought of going back to school with those early morning routines, and late nights of homework doesn't sound like any fun — shopping for school supplies ranks right up there with Christmas!!
When I was a small kid heading off to grade school all the way to current day... I love(d) school/office supplies. And boy have they come a long way since 1986 (yes, that's when I started kindergarten).
Once you start college you grab your book bag again because you're trekking all over the campus from class to class, and you realize that no one really cares if you show up to class or not because if you don't, it's all on you. You wish you were in high school again because they supplied your text books where you didn't have to purchase expensive books that you'll probably never use again. But then again college still seems so much better than high school, right?
But like I said, I'll always love school/office supplies. I have my favorite pens, highlighters, sticky notes, notebooks, and of course everything is in cool colors these days, too. A favorite of mine is my planner. I haven't branched out to pay an arm and a leg for an Erin Condren planner, yet... but I'm hoping to broaden my planner horizons, soon.
What is your favorite school/office supply? While out shopping this week I heard many little ones asking for this and that as I passed the school supply section. I wonder what the hot item will be this year?
