    i just took the kids shopping for back to school holy cow prices have gone up.. I spent over $200 on each kid for the clothes I knew they need just off the top of my head. and then another $100 on the pens and paper and glue and other supplies they need... and I know I will get a list from my daughters school to things to get in addition to what I already bought.

    I just went through their closets and took out the stuff that they dont like... they have out grown .. or have holes in it... they are going to be nekkid!... they really need to stop growing!

    It is crazy expensive!! I just spent over $300 on my daughter....clothes, shoes, ear piercing. She still needs school supplies and a couple more pairs of shoes. The nice thing is we can wear the same shirts, so maybe I can borrow some of those new ones. [​IMG]

    Quote:Us too. Though we start full schedule tomorrow. I love the uniforms though. They cost just as much but it's so much easier, no arguing about who's going to wear what and what's cool and what's not and on and on. They get to pick what color polo they want and that's it, I'm done!

    My kids are grown now. The youngest is a senior in college so I'm not buying anything for school, I just get the bill. [​IMG]
