When beginning to shop and prep for the upcoming school year, a list is a must. Searching online, there are a million lists to chose from. Some of them are very helpful. On the other hand, there are some you'd do better without. I had to find what would help me the most. I decided to compile a list of things I felt was necessary and add once I compared it to a list I found on Pinterest. I also had to realize that everything on those lists, I wasn't going to need. So I was able to edit and create a list of the necessary for myself.
I based my list off the first list pictured below and was able to use it as a platform. I also decided to save the list in my phone. This way, whenever I went to ANY store (and I do mean ANY) and found something on my list, I could cross it off immediately. As time goes on, I also edit my list. Adding and removing things if I no longer need it or if I find something else.
