September, 1948 I enter school. For the next 16 years I am a full time student and getting books and school supplies is a ritual. September 1970, my firstborn enters school. The ritual begins again without pause until June 2004 when my youngest graduates high school. Wouldn’t you think with four children that I’ve had enough shopping for back to school supplies? It doesn’t work that way. Please remember:
#1, I have hubby for which to shop.
#2, I am a grammy of seven.
News Flash! Times are tough, and the U. S. is in a bad economy. I try to shop wisely and stretch every dollar. Hubby’s five year old laptop isn’t working properly. Grandson #1′s three year old laptop isn’t working at all. With technology what it is for computers today, I have to consider replacing rather than repairing. So, I’m off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard who stocks everything at great prices. Time to check out Walmart for HP’s Back-to-School Technology. No need to break the piggy bank. Computer prices continue to fall as with new features are built in. Besides, if I don’t buy now then there is always Christmas.
Buying my youngest a HP laptop when he entered the service September, 2004, was one of the smartest things I ever did. His emails and pictures helped a lot. Laptops eight years later are even better – smaller, smarter, and speedier. Today’s world is built on computers. Wish the HP Pavilion dv6-7029wm Entertainment PC had been around back then.
