  1. Thanks for the list, it’s very helpful.  Any ideas on a good price for the jumbo pencils (i.e. Ticonderoga’s “My First Pencil” for beginners)? 
    Wish stores would put binders other than 1-inch at a good price; I have to buy some 1/2-inch binders for school and they’re hard to find at all here, much less at the sale prices for 1-inch.  Go figure.

  2. This is very helpful. Thank you!
