I went to the PS's surplus store today for the first time. I came away with 11 movies (7 history and 4 science) and 2 very nice, wooden desk chairs for $22.75! Now the kids have a very simple computer desk in the school room (to share) for computer assignments, and they each have a nicer "student desk" with hutch and stuff (from Ikea... on sale a couple of weeks ago) in their room. Their bedroom looks like a dorm room now - bunk beds and matching desks with a dresser separating them. Perfect, and all of it was very cheap! (The computer and desk combined in the school room cost us $7, but we had to buy the chair for it... it's a nice swivel desk chair from Office Max, so it was like $75 or something. The most expensive thing of all the stuff we've gotten for them!)
They probably all have something ... but it might be a one-time event at the beginning or end of a school year or a particular day of the week. Our surplus store is only open on Thursdays, for example.
I checked and they don't have anything like that here. They do have excessed stuff available, but it's only occasional and you have to call at the right time.

It would be nice and you'd think they would have loads of stuff. Since next year all(well most, the following year *all will transfer) the k-6 kids are moving into the new campus. It has brand new almost everything. Would be a good way for them to make money off the stuff they aren't going to use. Especially since they keep complaining they don't have money for new stuff that they *want(but don't need). If I were in charge I'd be selling off and not throwing away all of the older stuff.
They're not very bright.
