Going back to school brings stress to families on many levels, especially when it comes to the finances. Parents of multiple children feel it the most, when supply lists arrive and it all gets overwhelming. The first place to start the shopping at is actually your home, because you must have many supplies left over from last year, or things that just hide around the house. Take a large bin and put there anything you find that may be needed for the following year. When finished, go over the bin and start crossing out things off the shopping list.
