Just a reminder–your local shelter or food pantry can use donations of school supplies. One easy way to donate is to buy a few extra items when you’re shopping. Office M@x has a sale through this Saturday. Spiral notebooks are 5 cents each, notebook paper is 1 cent for 100 sheets and ten-packs of pencils are 10 cents.
Just a word of warning–60 spiral notebooks plus 18 packs of notebook paper and a couple hundred pencils are heavier than you might imagine. But light on the pocketbook as the total was only around five dollars.
