I had this same problem, however the person that borrowed the most was the
counselor and personnel director. I took advantage of it, went to my principal
and asked him "Should I start saying no to your counselor and secretary when
they want to borrow supplies or should we increase my budget for the added
supplies?" He suddenly decided that it was okay for the counselor and others to
borrow and doubled my budget. Of course I didn't make this publically known and
just helped myself to a larger supply order. It helped me out in the long run
just because he was to lazy to create individual budgets for these people.
