  • What is dc's? My kids never get new clothing until around thanksgiving. Unless they need new underwear or socks.

  • luckily my ds wears uniforms so it makes it easier to do the b2s clothes shopping, i also got him Toy Story light up tennis, hes 4yrs old so there isn't really much that he doesn't like.Thank goodness for that!

  • I got all of dd's clothes second hand (except what she got for her birthday from others). She chooses what she likes. She may only be four, but she knows what she wants. I say let her have control of the few things she can so that she learns responsibility.

  • John gets to pick out most of what I buy for him... Either brand new or second hand. Its not very picky but he does have days when he just rather have jeans & a funny tee instead of polo's or button ups... (btw hes five) I started buying clothes for back to school in may. (but at the time my son was also just growing out of 3t's & thats all he had for jeans.)) I kinda went over board, because it was my sons first time going to school. =)

  • Our kids aren't old enough, but we did take advantage of the back to school sales :o)

  • What I usually done was just get clothes throughout the year so when school time came around I already had clothes for them.
