I have spent the better part of the last 2 weeks searching in vain for a "3 pocket folder" for D's school supply list. I've seen 2 pocket folders - even 8 pocket folders - but ne'er a 3 pocket folder.
It's right there - on the list - a 3 pocket folder.
Finally, someone suggested that perhaps they simply left out an "s" and it was three separate pocket folders.
Ah, that makes sense.
So, I read with laughter the trials of another school shopping parent - a mother from overseas, transplanted to the Midwest.
Good to know I'm not alone in school shopping confusion.
At least we are set on scissors. This time of year, Husband D. becomes a rock star around here. (He's an engineer for a company that makes scissors with orange handles...a very popular man in late August...)
