If there is one thing I have learnt with having kids at school it’s to get organised with stationary………….A word of advice to all of you who have kids starting school for the 1st time……..
1.Set aside a shelf/cupboard to store extra school stationary.
2.Buy extra stationary now,later on through the year it gets way expensive.
3.If you have little ones at school who need those MON AMI retractable pencil crayons buy at least 3 extra packs….they literally eat them up!
4.Buy Pritt…… lots of it…or the generic glue sticks if you have little ones,they go through them like crazy.
5.Buy those booklets of coloured paper and cardboard….nothing worse than being told at 19h00 they need it for a project in the morning…superettes NEVER STOCK THIS!
6.Buy big poster size cardboard….same reason as above.
7.If you have a kid going to High School buy an extra Maths Set….they can never find them the night before the big exam!
8.Cover text books in contact paper…last long and sticky fingers can be wiped off easily.
Most of all when they tell you to mark your kids things……MARK YOUR KIDS THINGS….ESPECIALLY SCHOOL SHOES(tippex works well to mark shoes on the inside)
