My daughter was about to enter Kindergarten, and this would be my first year of buying school supplies. I received the list of necessary items from the school, and it was just as extensive as all the stories I had heard from other friends. I had to laugh at all the required items one needed for Kindergarten now, but on the other hand I knew budgets were always stretched thin and in the end, this was a way to help the school. I made notes on my list so I would not forget any of the specifics, and got ready to load up on markers, crayons, tissues, erasers, notebooks, folders and so on. I knew taking my daughter would make the process twice as difficult, so I left her with the neighbor to play. I set the adt canadaalarm system alarm prior to leaving the house and headed to the closest Wal-Mart. I had hoped to get everything from one store, but the list was quite specific on certain items and I determined there would need to be a trip to Target as well. I felt organized for my trip, though as soon as I got home I realized I had missed a few items. I knew each year I would get a bit more efficient at this process.
