Big DS has 2 morning classes, then lunch, then 2 afternoon classes. So he asks me to buy him 2 5-subject notebooks. He uses one for morning and one for afternoon.

What cracks me up is that kids all the way up to 8th grade need hand sanitizer, tissues, paper towels, lysol wipes. Then they hit high school and need nothing but notebooks, pens and pencils. Hmmm. High school students don't get runny noses?
OMG, $88 for gym clothes and that didn't include any type of shoes!!
