It’s that time! The kids are all starting to head on back to school. Public school, Private school, Charter school, Homeschool….pretty much every kind of school. Are you ready?

Even though we are homeschoolers, we purchase school supplies just like everyone else. In fact I would tend to say that I probably purchase way more than if my kids were going to go to public school. This is because my kids are craft-a-holics. Yes…I said craft-a-holics…

Paint, Markers, Crayons, Glue Sticks, Glue, Paper, Pencils…you name it and my kids will devour it in an art binge. Not kidding.

Another thing homeschoolers do a lot of? On the go activities! This means we need snacks to take with us so no one gets hungry while we are out. We are out of the house a lot already and the school year is just beginning for us! Who knows what else will pop up through out the year.

Right now, exclusively at Target, for the month of August you can pick some extra savings! Check it out below:

I’m really intrigued by the dry erase crayons. Why didn’t they have these when we were kids!?
