This is the final weekend many parents have to get those last-minute school supplies.

The first day for Asheville City and Buncombe County School Districts is Monday.

"These school supplies can get out of hand quickly. Set the limit. Know what you're going in to get, know what you need to spend as a family, and don't exceed your comfort level. If you do feel as though you're exceeding your comfort level, contact the school, we'll help you out a little bit," said Jeremy Stowe, principal of Emma Elementary School.

Topping many back-to-school lists are No. 2 pencils, colored pencils, erasers, paper, hand sanitizer, and tissues. Educators say you should check out what supplies you already may have from last year--and also newspapers for any coupons.

You might also want to buy in bulk, or shop dollar stores for discounted items.
