School Shopping!

Last night, we took Jaden shopping for all of the things on her preschool supply list!  This was a big deal for both her and me.  I can't believe my baby is going to be starting school.  A new chapter in her life that she is more than ready for.  I know she will do great in school.

Here is her supply list:

Required
  • 1 box of Kleenex
  • 1 package of napkins
  • 1 roll of paper towels
  • 2 boxes of 5 oz. wax-coated Dixie cups

Needed but not required
  • Elmer's glue sticks
  • Crayola washable markers
  • Crayola washable water color paints
  • Scotch Tape
  • 16 count Crayola crayons
  • baby wipes
  • package of plastic spoons

We didn't get to shop for the traditional school supplies like pencil boxes and notebooks, but we did get a few things off of the optional list so Jaden could actually shop in the back-to-school aisle.  I really like how they set the list up.  We are still paying full day daycare for Jaden even though she will only be there for a half day.  It was nice to not have to spend a fortune on school supplies.  I'm definitely going to keep my eyes open for sales after school starts.  I'm sure the preschool is always in need of supplies!


Jaden had fun collecting her supplies.  She got each item off of the shelf by herself and as we were leaving Target, she thanked me for buying them for her!  It won't be long... 35 more days!

Exciting! Jaden is going to LOVE it! Why are you guys still having to pay for full day daycare? That's lame!

It is lame. We don't get a price break until she starts full-day school.
