    I'm with you all about being excited!
    I like the ideas about color coordinating notebooks....
    but mine is to get a large 3 ring binder and lots of plastic sleeves, then have dividers for each class. I place each syllabus in a a sleeve within it's proper place and viola'! Instant organization in one handy folder!
    I wish it would hurry up and get here already!

    okay I am a major office supply geek to begin with, but I just can't wait to buy my school supplies for the fall. I already bought a very cool Nike binder. It's a 3 ring binder and it also has an accordian file built in, along w/ lots of pockets and pen holders. It's exactly what I needed so I went ahead and bought it. I am trying to wait until Georgia has their sales tax holiday to buy the rest of my stuff, but it is killing me. I want to go ahead and get it all now so I can play and get all organized! anyone else feel this way or am I the only office supply geek?

    ??? You can put school supplies on your taxes??? I knew that you can put tuition on your taxes - but I didn't know you could with supplies! I threw away my receipts for books that I bought these past 2 quarters - I there anything I can do about that?????

    What all will I need for school. I am starting my prereqs in Aug. I am going to use my small carry on with wheels (luggage) for my books because I do not want to carry all those big books on my back. Okay. I know notebooks. I know pencils and pens. A highlighter. What else can you think of that I might need? I am starting to get excited now!

    I actually live in Chattanooga, TN, but my husband is from Jonesboro, GA and we usually go down there every few months or so to see his parents, so we a planning a visit around the sales tax holiday. That way I can hit the Old Navy outlet in Locust Grove. I am so excited, I can't wait to go school shopping!

    I would suggest, instead of getting notebooks, that you get a 3 ring binder so that you can add paper if you need to. I can't tell you how many times I have run out of room in a notebook. The binder that I got is made by Mead and has Nike swooshes on it. It's got an accordian file built in and also all sorts of pockets to store pens and other stuff in. It's really the first one I've ever seen like this that has everything together. I am going to get some pocket dividers for extra storage and then fill it w/ lots of paper. One other thing you might want to get are some plain cheap binders so that at the end of the semester, you can transfer out all your old notes and stuff but still have it on hand and organized when it comes time for review and the NCLEX. That's all I can think of right now...

    Debbie.....I don't know if your bookstore can do anything for you as far as the receipt or not....did you pay with a check or credit card because then you would have documentation from the bank or credit card company.

    Hmmmm...that's true. I paid by debit card - but I can probably look up an old statement. Would that work?
    Where is it that you can use school supplies as a deductable? I assume it's only college supplies?
  10. by   Energizer Bunny
    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's only college. I would have to ask dh for sure where it is you do all the deducting, etc and he's out of town until Sunday. REmind me then! LOL!

    I just took my 4 kids and 1 friend of their's (whom basically lives with us. Even her dad said he needs to pay me child support! LOL), and I spent a whopping $270. A LOT of school supplies, including 2 inkjet cartridges (my HP does not like the refurbished ones that I was buying on eBay, I've discovered), and some nice pens and hiliters. When I get a child-free shopping day (probably next Tuesday, when I go get my student ID, parking pass, etc.), I'll stop at Staples and REALLY dent my checkbook!

    Now, all these great, expensive school supplies guarantee good grades, right???

    I'd like to know about the Nursing Student planner also. I've got one planner that I can't refill, but it is a baseball one that I love!

    I'm also going to buy a PDA (and I swear, I will NOT start a new thread about them! )
