Back-to-school time is nearly upon the typical American family, and preparing children for this transition is no small test of parental endurance! Could you possibly fill the class supply list for under $50? Why did the teacher ask for the impossible-to-find brand of #2 pencils? Why did Johnny have to outgrow every pair of shoes during the summer? Should you choose school lunch or pack your own?
Please help me spread the word by copying and tweeting this:
We’re inviting public/private school parents, homeschooling parents, and any parents who wants to share tips and encouragement about this annual rite of passage. We’ll cover some tips on stocking up with supplies, encouraging schools to be wellness-minded and eco-friendly, and green back-to-school ideas that could save you money.
