Back to School Shopping – What’s in Your Backpack?

I am SOOO stinkin’ excited that all three of my boys will be in school. Truett heads to Pre-K this year, Tyler is a senior, and Toby is a sophomore. This means me and my man will be alone for the first time in years!!!!!  Anyways, it’s that time again to do school shopping and in order to beat the crowds, we did ours this weekend.   As always, ,we shopped at Walmart. Since they ad match and have low prices, it’s easier for us to stay at one store.

The cute camo backpack in the video, which is a perfect pre-k size, was ONLY $4.88!!!  It fits your regular 8×10 papers and is still small enough so that Truett doesn’t have to haul around a big bulky backpack.  We prefer Crayola brand so while you can get Roseart? colors cheaper, we happily paid $.40 cents for a package of 24 crayons.  The school box was $.57 cents and the scissors were $1.47.  The Kleenex boxes were the most expensive thing which was about $4 bucks so my shopping could have easily been well under $20 bucks.

See what’s in Truett’s Backpack and share with us what’s in yours!

Remember, Walmart does ad match so there’s really no need to head to the other stores.  Save your gas money y’all!!
