Is this not bad?

Spending a total of $600.00 on school uniforms for 2 kids that is 10 days worth of clothes.

  • I don't know WHY in the world it took me so long to figure out what "10 days worth of clothes" meant. That was absurd.

    That is crazy. Maybe some of you mom's can get together at the end of the year, and swap/sell clothes.

  • Uh, wow. I only get 5 days worth of clothes. I get 2 shirts of each color and 2 of each color pants. And...I buy them at Wal-Mart. My bill would only be around $200.00, slightly under.

  • That's a lot of cash. I think I spend about half that on 10 days worth of preteen clothes.

  • Crazy! That is expensive. Is it tax deductible in the end? I think you can deduct it since it is for school.

  • We can't buy them at Walmart. They want a certain kind of pants, shorts, scooters, capri's, and shirts.

  • Wow! One of the good reasons to home school.

  • Like what? Our school asks for plain so many button polo's in red, navy or white and either navy or khaki pants.

  • Personally I think that is pretty high. I dont think I have ever spent even close to that much money on school clothes for the kids, or even close. I have two school age kids. And I only buy 5 days worth of school clothes, and I make sure I wash clothes on the weekend.

  • Wow! I am so glad my kid can wear whatever to school. We don't even break $100 on school clothes.
