BuzzFeed asked teachers which supplies they spend the most on out of pocket. Here’s what they had to say:
1. Tissues. Gesundheit.
Your child’s teacher has saved your family from 100,000 colds without you ever knowing.
According to Arizona Elementary School teacher Andi Katz, the items she buys and burns through the most frequently are “tissues, antibacterial wipes, glue sticks and regular, crayons, tissues and wipes, markers, scissors, construction paper, tissues and wipes, lined paper, pencils, and did I say tissues and wipes?”
9. Snacks and prizes!
Keep your kiddo’s class in mind the next time you make a Costco run.
Brianna Chenevey, an elementary school teacher in Northern California, suggests “things like glue sticks, emergency snacks, a box of Kleenex, and hand soap/sanitizer” as donations. “You can never have too much of that stuff.”
16. More tissues!
Your kid’s class just went through a box of tissues while you read this post.
