Back-to-school shopping: Local moms share their tips for stocking up on supplies

August 2, 2011

PLYMOUTH — ‘Tis the season for pens, notebooks, and glue—and not a small amount of stress for parents who need to provide new school supplies for their children.
“I’m not a good planner—I usually buy what I can the last couple of weeks before school starts, even if it breaks the budget,” said Hesper Manns, Knox mom of Layne, 14, and Brenna, 10.
Manns is not alone—the list of needed supplies, especially for parents of multiple children, can seem overwhelming. To combat budget worries, Plymouth mom Amy Schuler plans on buying school supplies gradually instead of all at once.

The contractors on the project will be allowed a 15-day extension for the days lost to the work stoppage which sets the official required completion date back to Oct. 17.
