August has whizzed by in a blur for me and the family. I tacked a business trip on the tail end of a family vacation last week, and next week will take another family trip. All together, I'll be out of town for 23 days this month!
Fortunately, I ordered school supplies for the coming year online for the convenience factor. With my children still in the beginning of elementary school, there was no need to personally select notebook designs. And since this is a tax-free shopping week in our region, we will save a bit as we stock up on sneakers, fall clothes and other necessities that are harder to buy over the Internet.
How are you when it comes to school supplies? Have you found ways to snag deals online or are you still cherishing the in-person trip to the store in August? I admit, it is an exciting ritual, despite the crowds and piles of picked-over merchandise.
