Not much has changed in the past few decades...
If you're like me you began your purchasing of pencils, composition books and crayons on July 5th, the day after July 4th --- when most stores began setting up their displays. To put it into context it's no different than buying Christmas decorations the day after Halloween. But I'll never be that latter guy. Just in case you were curious.
If you're not like me, and you're not residing in Atlanta, where school has already started. But even if you do reside in Atlanta, there never seems to be quite enough when it comes to school supplies and the clothes our kids burn through during the school year. Especially the first couple of weeks when they are still in summer mode and just as rough and tough and careless as they want to be. This goes for both the little ones and the big ones and all the ones in between. Despite all this the most amazing part of Back-to-School is seeing the joy that comes when my daughter sees her friends and reconnects with loud screams and big, little person hugs. My son, the teenager would rather be skewered, but it makes my heart smile each year he advances that much further into adulthood.
shopping online for your Back-To-School needs. They have pulled out all the stops to simplify your shopping experience by providing you with all the items you can find in stores but at eBay values.
