  • I have 3 in school. Two have already started and one starts on the 8th. Here is my breakdown and for those who say school supplies arent cheap...well, theyre lying!

    Uniforms $400
    School supplies, including folders, pens, highlights, dividers, locker shelves, hand sanitizer, pocket dictionary, spanish-english dictionary, and all the other pertinent things....$75.00
    Shoes for 11 yr old $29.99
    Backpack for 15 yr old $23.00
    Book fee for both girls $600
    Jeans for spirit day $50.00
    Then they came home the first day with another list of things we forgot such as Art sketch book, charcoal pencils, book covers and the best?....TI 83/84 graphing calculator....$99.00

    Its not over yet, I dont think

  • Two boys in school. Grade 1st and 4th. I will probably spend around $500. Because I already spent $200 on some clothes. But they still need more clothes, backpacks, school supplies and sneakers!

  • Wow, that is a lot ladies. I must have found some deals cause my school supplies were cheap! I have two boys, 6th grade and 2nd grade and I spent maybe $60 on supplies/backpacks(and they are the good stuff, I just know where the sales are I suppose) I have done about 1/2-3/4 my clothing shopping and spent maybe $36. LOL (Yes, another clearance sale with $2 and $3 shirts and shorts) still need shoes and then I'm done.

  • Homeschooler to 3 boys (11, 7, & 6) + a 2 1/2 yr old girl who LOVES books.

    Taking a wild guess - books, supplies, field trips, classes, etc --- $200-300 for all.

  • i am a homeschooler to 2 boys (5 and 4) and the curriculum I bought for the 5 yr old was 500 plus the workbooks for my 4 yr old came out to about 30, then the little side things for projects and so on came out to about 100 so I would say about 630 but I still want to get extra things like a new table and chair set for them to do work at, plus a cute bookshelf thats easy to acces for their comfy nook and things like that so im guess almost 200 more
