Have you started back to school shopping yet?

If not, when are you planning on starting to shop? I just started yesterday, and thanks to my MIL and SIL and myself looking for deals, most of their "school supply" list is done. But I do have the most expensive part left, which is the clothing, shoes, backpacks, etc. Speaking of which, anyone know of any deals for any of those items? Lol!

  • I have 2 to buy for, my ds is done! :) He is going into kindergarten. For supplies we pay the teachers and they get everything at a discount. I got his backpack, lunchkit (transformers) inside and outside shoes, jeans, pants, shirts, jackets, hoodies....I started a while back in the year and bought as I saw things on sale and got a size I knew he would need :)
    DD who will be going into grade 2, I have her lunchkit/backpack, shoes, some jeans, and 2 shirts. Still will get her some more shirts, a skirt, a hoodie, jacket., and probably whatever else I see, lol Its a tradition to get back to school things, so we have fun :)

  • we don't have lists yet, but I've been buying some of the basics every time I go to the store. Once I know what they specifically need I'll head out and get it, I like to be done as early as possible.

  • We don't have lists yet other than being told they need a backpack large enough to hold folders. I know which backpack we're getting but I'm waiting to see my MIL so she can order it. It's a LL Bean one and she has the credit card so she gets free monogramming and delivery. I did buy some pencils and folders at Staples for a penny each (sale ends tomorrow) because I know he'll need those, if not this year then certainly next year. I have some glue, crayons, and markers left from my sale shopping last year so I think I'm covered there.
