BTS Supply Experiment

August 17th, 2011 at 10:36 am

Before vacation, I was happy to see the email from the school that pre-packaged supply kits were still available for order and pick-up by the start day of 8/22. I called, very happy to order thinking how much time it would save me in the long run, I gave my 1, 2, 4, 7 and 8th grade orders and the total cost would be $160. Call me cheap/frugal/thrify, but I know that buying the loss leader items at $.25, $.40 and even $.99 would save me lots.

So far I've been to quite a few places (all while on the route to someplace else) and I'm tackling the lists with gusto (of course we've had some brand new or almost new things).

I'm thinking I'll spend under $80 all said and done. I'm looking forward to tallying up those receipts after the last items are purchased.

Will be interesting to see how much I save.

    We didn't need to buy too much this year. Some pencils, folders and notebooks. Quite a few things were able to be reused.

    We didn't have to purchase too much either. I usually buy the usual things when I see them on sale so I have quite a supply of school supplies.

    I always try to see by how much I can beat the kits. Usually I can save at least $50 doing it myself--plus I pickup extras at those super-cheap prices for the house and charitable donations.
