The Excitement (and Chaos) of Back to School Shopping

Ah, back to school shopping - the annual frenzy that combines excitement, chaos, and a whole lot of pencil sharpeners. It's that time of year when parents everywhere embark on a mission to stock up on school supplies like there's no tomorrow.

But let's be honest, back to school shopping can sometimes feel like navigating through a battlefield of backpacks and binders. You find yourself staring at endless rows of pencils, wondering if your child really needs 50 of them or if they're just planning to start their own stationary store.

And don't even get me started on the bulk purchases. Who knew you could fit so many glue sticks into one shopping cart? It's like we're preparing for an arts and crafts apocalypse.

But perhaps the most frustrating part is the dreaded duplicate purchases. You come home with a shiny new set of markers, only to discover that you already have three packs hiding in the depths of your closet. It's enough to make you question your sanity.

Print out barcode or QR code labels to scan for easier restocking from Amazon or Walmart. Always know precisely what is needed for replacement without constantly reviewing the supply closet or a spreadsheet.
