The Happiest Day of the Year

By Heather Webber / Heather Blake

Okay, it might not be the happiest, but it’s close.

It’s the day I go school supply shopping with my kids.

I love myself some school supplies. Mostly because I love office stores. They’re a little slice of heaven to me. All those pens. The paper. The notebooks! The folders! Never mind all the cute paper clips and thumbtacks.

Every year I try to resist buying things for myself when I take the kids shopping, but every year I can’t resist the lure.

This year I bought turquoise and purple sharpies, lots of folders, and some post-it flags. Not too bad, right?

How about you? Can you resist the lure of an office supply store?
