Shopping for School Supplies
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Do you like to shop? Do you know that shopping can make you a better student? That is, when you shop for school supplies. Having the necessary supplies can make you more organized. It can make your study time more efficient. What do you need to shop for? Let's take a look.
 
2     Of course you need the basics- pens, pencils, and paper. Get pens that are comfortable in your hand. Decide which kind of pencils you like- mechanical or wooden. Mechanical pencils are refillable. You buy lead separately and put it in the pencil when you need it. Basic wooden pencils eventually get so small you can't use them. But you might like the way they write. It's up to you to decide. And if it will help motivate you, get ones with cool pictures or sayings on them.
 
3     Loose leaf notebook paper is a must. This is paper that already has holes punched in it. It slides easily in a notebook. It can be lined in two ways. College ruled paper has lines that are closer together than wide ruled notebook paper. Again, get whichever you prefer.
