I have triplets who will be 5 years old next month. We seem to go through a lot of
crayons. I tried to use the cheaper brands, but they just don’t seem to work as good
or stay in one piece as long as Crayola brand. Buy Crayola crayons up when they
are on sale for the new school year for just 25 cents for a box of 16. Then, as old
ones get too broken, pull out these as replacements. This saves a lot of money if
you go through a lot of crayons as we do. Also, you have extras on hand if you want
to give a box of crayons and a new coloring book as a gift. I think right now this
same size box costs over a dollar. This tip can apply to any school supplies you
may need throughout the year. You can also buy washable markers and glue sticks
cheaper at the beginning of a new school year. Another thing I like to buy at the
beginning of the new school year are single subject spiral notebooks for 10 cents
each! I use these for notes at doctor visits or anything else I may need one for.
I hope you like my tips.
