have you started back to school shopping yet?

I think its way to early, but there's a lot of really good sale right now. I know if I wait until Aug. there won't be much in the way of sizes left. But I don't really have the $ now.

  • My daughter starts school next year and I think we will start buying clothes at the end of the seasons this year for next.

  • I see the good sales too. One year I outfitted my DD during July and she actually out grew them before the weather changed.

  • I'm doing a little at a time. I expect the sales will continue right through August, so I'm not too worried about there not being enough sizes, etc. My son did a huge growth spurt this year, so I know he's going to need everything.

  • I'm a teacher so the back to school shopping signs are a bit depressing! LOL! Seriously, try to get deals when and where you can, thats how I buy my kids' clothes. (At the end of the season for the next season)

  • We buy school supplies all year, when there are sales. We start with the clearance sales just after school starts; keep an eye out for the one cent sales from the office supply stores, use the $10 off 20 coupons from OfficeMax whenever we get them, and grab a few $10 off 30 coupons at Office Depot from Dunkin Donuts.

  • Yes. I got their backpacks already. And I've started buying school supplies. I need to start working on clothes. *sigh*. I can't believe it's that time already.

  • Yes I wasn't going to until after our vacation in August but everyone is getting rid of their summer stuff for fall. So I had no choice but to buy the kids back to school outfits. I am currently bidding on EBay for some fall stuff for the youngest in a couple of sizes too big that way I have it if she has a growth spurt.
