URGENT! Do Your Back-To-School Supplies Shopping Now!

Be the hero, not the zero.

If you're like me, you wait until the last minute to get your children's supplies for school. Then, you find yourself at a big box store on a Sunday night fighting with some kid's grandmother over a box of pencils.

Save yourself the trouble and, with the help of The Single Father's Guide, order your children's school supplies RIGHT NOW. Here are some of the most popular items which you can just click, place in your shopping cart, and have them delivered right to your front door.

When you've finished your shopping a month before school starts and weeks before all the other kids parents have even started, you can smugly sit back, enjoy a glass of lemonade - or something stronger, by the pool, and just . . . relax. You've got it under control.

You can thank me later.
