If You Have Schooling Kids, You Will Always Visit The Statitionary Shop!!!
I have 3 schooling kids, Ikhwan in standard 4, Marsya in standard 2 and Alya in standard 1. All of them (like us when we were children) needs stationaries such as pencil, eraser, sharpener, rulers, mechanical pencil, colour pencil, crayon, scissors, glue and many more. Believe it or not, I think we (the parents) visit the stationary shop on a weekly basis!!!
I don’t think they use all the pencils until it get shorter and cannot be used. Neither do I think that they use the eraser until it is fully consumed (become small and difficult to hold). I also don’t think that they use the sharpener to the extend that the sharpener blade becomes corroded that it cannot sharpen any 2B stabilo pencil or Luna colour pencil. Nope… Not at all. I strongly believe they lost the stationaries from time to time simply because they are just kids. They tend to forget and also other students borrow then maybe they never return it back. As a result, we have to continuously purchase any stationaries that they are lacking. My wife will regularly check the kids stock and supply. Then we will purchase them accordingly.
The same with the other parents. They also need to buy the stationaries from time to time because their kids cannot keep the things properly and longer. Hmmm… i think this is typical. Maybe I was also like that when I was small.. ?!
Yesterday, myself and Marysa went to the stationary shop nearby our house with a long list of things to buy.
