Having 2 kids who need scientific calculators this year means that we need not one but TWO pricey calculators. Given that my kids are all 2 years apart, we need 2 that can get us through high school. Texas Instruments T-84 plus graphing calculator is available from Office Depot for under $100! I haven’t seen it that low in my searches this summer! I was pretty excited to see they also make protective pouches for them- definitely an investment and not just a school supply.
The oldest heads to high school this month, and for her birthday we got her a nice Chromebook for studies. She babysits a few days a week after school and we wanted her to have something she could tote easily to and from school, babysitting, etc. I like the idea of a Laptop Backpack – this one from Best Buy looks pretty nice, and will protect the chromebook AND her school supplies.
I am P I C K Y about pencils. I love Dixon Ticonderoga #2 pencils. They are my favorite. I have a favorite mechanical pencil too but these are my go to. Great price. Great quality. Buy a box and send in to the teachers. They’ll love you for it.
I really wish I had a little enough kid to buy this rainbow dress for – the rainbows and the blue just shout happy and fun and I LOVE it. Sadly, my littlest turned 10 this week and she’s way too tall for this dress. Macy’s has some super cute dresses and clothes for kids!
