I have made a couple of posts that include items you will need to purchase for starting and continuing PD. To make things easier I have created a printable check list that can be found here. Make sure you not only print out one for yourself, but print them out for friends and family so that they are able to help you by buying some of the items on your list. I know how hard it is to ask for help, but I'm learning that people do want to help and giving them a way to help makes them feel good. I have been very blessed by my friends.
