I agree @ozeymumof5. I was going to use the $400 to whack a debt into their school fees.
I probably will cry @LoveLivesHere if I can't figure something else out! And yes, it is disgusting behaviour. For the past 10 years I have been employed at a school where we were still using scissors from 20 years ago because THEY'RE SCISSORS! So long as they still cut there is nothing wrong with them? At the end of every year each teacher would do a bulk order, and get everything we believe our students would need. The first day was always exciting, seeing the kids walk in and get so excited over all their new supplies (without Mum or Dad having to fork out a single cent in fees just to have them!)
Unfortunately, that school is a 30 min drive away and just impractical to send my own kids there.

Oops sorry I meant to quote nomsie's post where she mentioned her employer had not offered her a position after her leave.
