Hey North Dakota! Is It That Time Of Year? #BackToSchool
How can this be happening! Just a week ago we were debating again on our fifth or maybe more like 7th tent! Yes - We are the Crazy Aunt & Uncle that feels each nephew and niece is deserving of their own tent when on an adventure with us! #Goals
So not having kids of our own, believe us at the shock wondering into local stores in the BisMan area just to see our tents, coolers, and water noodles... GONE. Vanished. Adios!
I'm still not sure how we feel about this... One thing for certain, we are definitely NOT ready for this #BackToSchool vibe hitting us at every turn. We've got summer memories still to be made with our clan of nephews and nieces!
"Out" With Summer Goodness and "In" With The School Supplies! NO!!!
So after strolling the various aisles, and having now restocked our own home "Office Supplies" better than if it was tax season... it leads us to the question, do parents ever feel like the "Back To School" list never ends once school starts?
With all the technology now in the palm of our hands, thou we are not for that being the case, have parents or teachers saw ANY relief on the pocketbooks?
Pry another answer we could see receiving is that yes, there may be fewer items on the actual "back to school" list than from years gone by... BUT with recent inflation or even "shrinkflation"... those dollars might be still the same or even more!
How do you prepare for #BackToSchool? How do you NOT "break the bank"?
