**prepare yourselves for some ultimate nerdom here, folks**
I LOVE back-to-school shopping!
I'm not even talking about shopping for clothes. I'm talking about school supplies. I just went to Office Max to get some stuff for my classroom - that place is awesome. And score! As a teacher, I get reimbursed for my purchases!
Seriously though, there's just something about an unopened box of pencils, waiting to be sharpened, packages of pure Pink Pearl erasers, aisles of unadulterated pens & markers...
And don't even get me started on the notebooks. I am obsessed with notebooks. Doug has made fun of me several times because I like to buy cute notebooks and then set them aside to prolong the enjoyment of opening up to that first clean page... I think I have a problem. Also planners. I love planners & have been known to keep at least 3 at a time. (You'd think I'd be more organized, right?!)
Anyway, I just love school & office supplies. It may be a small...ish factor of why I became a teacher in the first place.
Does anyone else share this love/madness?
