You know that feeling you get in the summer that turns your stomach into a rollercoaster from anxiety? Around mid-July. No, not from overeating grilled corn with cotija cheese at your friend’s backyard party. I’m talking about the feeling you get after seeing your first, second, third back to school school supply commercial! Yea, that feeling.
I’ve had that uneasy feeling many, many years. My relaxed, no alarms until September, summer eyes go from glancing at the school supply list when it arrives to immediately worrying we won’t find the 10 pack ultra fine tip black felt tip pens or white kneaded erasers (not standard — on sale — pink erasers!) as specified on the school supply list.
My daughter is starting a new school this September (cue my nervousness about her adjusting to middle school!). It is pretty clear I used to dread back to school shopping for school supplies but this year her list is pretty reasonable — and not crazy specific about brands like it has been in years passed.
But of course one thing remains about back to school shopping .. not everything can be found in one store. So off we went to Walgreens to pick up a few things we had yet to cross off her list!
Quick little trips for back to school essentials at Walgreens are sanity savers. We can be in and out of the store and I don’t have to dread shopping at more than one place for a few school supplies. And since its Walgreens, I can trust the store brand for some of the essentials I picked up. Nothing like saving money where I can!
