We had most of the items left over from last year for our elementary school child.<quoted text>
Seriously??? Twenty dollars on school supplies??? Try like over $200!! You left off a zero. And,$150 on video games??? Um, where do you shop for your kid's gaming needs??? If you spend $150 on video games, then you SHOULD have to buy the districts' supplies!
The $150...how about the cost of a Nintendo DS, on top of the game cartidges. New games are still around $40.
What on earth are you buying that costs $200? 14kt gold pencils and jewel encrusted pencil boxes?
