It's the time of the year for little school people to run out and buy a whole new set of school supplies. New notebooks, new folders (with the Jonas Brothers), new pencils, new pens, new crayons, new markers, new bag, new everything. And since the good green people are out there, organic, recycled things are the way to go.
I am sorry to tell you this is not how to do it. Don't buy new, use what you have. I'm going to try and not buy anything for school this year. I doubt it will happen, I build a lot of things. But I'm not buying any more paper or anything to write with or anything to hold things. Maybe you should do the same.
