I'm still in back to school mode...
Pretty soon stores will be marking down school supplies (have to make way for the Halloween candy, don't you know?) and you will be able to score crayons, pencils, and other items for next to nothing.
It is the perfect time to consider buying extra and giving to those who need them. They make great additions to shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child and local agencies, such as children's homes, DSS, and your school guidance counselor always have a need for those children whose parents are unable to afford supplies. Keep your eyes open for deals and share the love!
