Good info. I also heard about the opportunity for teachers to work at Wal-Mart for the day to help kids with their school supply lists. Supposedly you get free stuff. Ever done that?

If you have money (not PO's but cash) that you can spend, watch
Walmart near the start of the school year. They put crayola marker sets
on sale for like 98 cents (no limit). I used to buy 48 each fall.
Also, sale or not, never buy Rose Art anything (quality sucks).
