@Uhlease- Yes my two older kids switch classes so they need a ton more. Example: one binder, loose leaf, six dividers and a folder is just for one period with one teacher.

One teacher wants yellow highlighters but another teacher wants only orange highlighters.

 Wow, that's pretty specific if they're telling what color highlighters to get! Crazy!

I have over 70 things to buy just for school supplies. I also have to get backpacks and school clothes and that stuff. :(

They also specified that glue had to be Elmer's. Scissors have to be Fiskars. Crayons and colored pencils have to be Crayola. Pencil cases have to be canvas, etc.

 Oh trust me girlfriend I am on the soap box with you.  It's RIDICULOUS what the schools expect you to purchase for the supplies.  I have three children as well although one is grown with babies of her own but I have watched it get more out of control year after year.

We use to go to school with a notebook, a couple of folders and some pencils! WTH?

Feeling your pain :-/

@NicholeB- EXACTLY! Thank you! I have no problem with buying some supplies for school but every year it gets worse and worse. I went to high school with a five subject notebook (with the pocket folders in it) and a pen everyday. How much stuff do you need really?
