Hi guys! I'm pretty excited for the school to start! Excited to meet new people and make friends.. I know it can make me move on and forget my depression! What am I really excited for is to buy school supplies! I don't know, but every school year, that's what I really look up to! Even though we don't have much budget for it, but at least we can buy!

That's great! We have got the same feeling when I am still studying. I am very excited to buy school supplies. I used to buy those important things only, making sure that it fits in my budget. By the way, when is the official start of your school? Hmmm, I am going to be sad because I am going to really miss you here in myLot. I really hope and pray that you will be able to cope up well with the school curriculum. I am really happy for you eddsss. It is really nice to see that you are happy. Take care always coz I care..

Hi bunso! You just made me smile! You remind me of my good old days when I was a student! Buying school supplies,uniforms,shoes and bags is what really excites me too before the school opening,haha! And I will go to school so early in my first week,haha! The remaining days,not that early but not late bunso,hehe! I remember when I was in college,I do the shopping alone,mom is not with me anymore,hehe! Well,I'm a big girl then! Make a list before buying bunso so you wont forget any supplies. It doesn't matter if the supplies are not branded,having a complete set is what matters,just see if the supplies are of good quality okay. Enjoy your shopping! See yah!

Hi inay! Its really pretty fun! Well, unlike you, Mom is still with me buying with my stuffs! I guess I'm not yet a big girl! LOL! Yes, so true inay! Having those branded stuffs is not what matters to me.. Just having something I can use in school is good enough, whether its branded or not! :)

When I was studying, I also loved shopping for school supplies! The thought of having new things for the coming schoolyear makes me happy . New things meaning new additional notebooks to add to the recycled ones, pens because pens from the previous school year has gone inkless already or a new bag because my old bag for 3 consecutive school years already said goodbye. This may be the reason why they say shopping (for whatever) is therapeutic . Have fun shopping. I hope you get good finds with all the funky, vibrant designs.

When my children were younger they were excited to get their new school supplies. When they became teenagers, then it was all about how they looked at school and not the supplies they took with them. it's difficult to get a good combination there sometimes.

I'm like Kathleen Kelley in You've Got Mail, there's just that particular time of the year wherein you just feel like buying school supplies. Even if it's been years since I last went to school, I still get in on the excitement of the kids and parents scrambling in the malls to buy supplies for the new school year. I never really got excited about schooling but the scent of new books and having new stuff to use were enough to get me out of bed for the first day of classes.

hello, That's good for you! Me too when I was in elementary and high school I was so excited to buy some new staff. I love it! because all are new! ha ha You just need to look for things that are really useful for you, and think that you can used for another year. Life now, are difficult we must be practical.

You remind me of my schooldays. I have the same feeling before, but aside from the excitement and would also feel nervous if i will have enough money to buy for the entire school supplies that i need. So, what i do is, i recycle my previous notebooks by getting the unused pages and stitch it to make one. In that case i can use the money saved from buying notebook and just buy other stuff - like different colors of pens.

Hi! Going to school and meet new friends is something really excited. It is not surprise for you to feel excited when is time to buy the school supplies since you can effort it. But for those people who cannot effort it, they will think that it is a burden when ever they have to find money to buy the school supplies. You should feel lucky that you do not need to worry about the money at all.

NO. You're very wrong yspmyl, I have a lot of problems when it comes to money.. I only buy few things and the most important things in school.. Its just few, but it still excites me!

Have you ever experience that you have to look up for money to buy those important school supplies? I had that when I was in primary school and I have to borrow money from someone to buy books. That will be the most unhappy period I would say when ever it comes to school reopen.

When I was younger, I was so excited to go to school because I get to choose my school supplies. Mom usually cover my notebooks with plastic covers while I watch. I look forward on my first day at school as I will be able to use them already.

Hi edss!!! I'll be going back to school, too but I'm not that excited. During my first year last year, I was really excited because I missed school a lot. But when I tasted a year of MS, I think it's really a lot of work, more than what I imagined! I didn't know MS study is very demanding! It competes with my work. But I cannot stop now. I can't go back out now from what I started. I don't get excited buying school supplies anymore, too. Although I like buying cute school stuffs. I have a lot of unused school supplies so I won't be buying new ones. I used to get excited with this though, back when I was in high school and college. When I was in high school, I used to buy notebooks with pictures of celebrities. I was "jologs" then. Hahaha... When I was in college, I used to buy non-wire notebooks because I wanted to save time. If I use wired notebooks, I had to remove the wire and "sew" the holes like what I did back in high school. And I liked non-wire notebooks, which are usually for elementary students, because of the pictures of different anime characters. Cheers.

You are like my daughter who is an incoming freshman this year. She is very excited to buy all her things in school but of course because life is not easy these days, we really buy only the important ones.

Hi. edsss17. Oh tell me about it! When I was younger, my grandmother worked as an custodian at the high school that I had attended when I was 15-18 years old. And, she would clean out the lockers and bring the student's left over notebooks, pencils, pens, folders, tablets, notebook binders, loose leaf paper and more... We was so happy to receive these school supplies. It seemed like we never really had to buy any school supplies for school because we always seemed to have so much from what our grandmother would bring home to us all. It was so much of fun, it was like we went shopping. But of course, right now, I buy any school supplies for all of my kids. I no longer get any free goodies like I used to get in the past. Churches do give out free school supplies to student's in late July though. I myself, find it very exciting when I go shopping for my kids, even though I don't go to school myself. It is just so fun and the thrill of it is exciting!

Well, you're not the only one. Even though I'm already a working mother, I still buy those things whenever I come across them. You should see my pencil cases, I have 2 of them . One is filled with the normal pens and pencils and the other one is full of highlighters (assorted colours), glitter pens and whiteboard marker pens. I guess no matter how old you are, you will always get excited over these things.

I understand your excitement! Just like you edsss, my daughter texted me from Manila that she is already very excited of the opening of classes. She's excited to meet her new classmates, her new school , her new set of teachers , her new dorm , her Medicine uniform , hew new bag , her new shoes and most of all, to use her new school supplies ! I can truly empathize with you guys, because i feel the same way too when i was still a student!
