So I have an awesome tip for people with school aged children. Walmart usually has many different school's supply list out by the school supplies. They also have the list from all the grades. Grab one for the next year up. That way when school is out the following year, you will already know what you need and can start collecting the beginning of the summer. The supply lists never really change. Mind you, I wouldn't go out and buy a $100 calculator before you know you really need it but if you could find one super cheap at a garage sale then I would say snag it.
Also if you have to make a list for a trip, save that list too. I used to dread traveling because I would have to try and remember everything that I needed to do and pack. Now I just pull out the list that I have kept since the kids were little. Mind you, I don't have to pack toys or swimsuits for them anymore but it is a nice walk down memory lane. And I have added to it over the years and I would call it complete.
So the real question is am I an anal-retentive or lazy?
