  • I spent about $40 on my son who is 11. He got new undies, socks, shoes, and a couple T's. I am waiting till it gets cooler before I buy new jeans, since he is growing like a weed right now, lol. My daughter, 17, only needed new socks and undies, since her uniforms from last year are still good. I spent about $15 on her.

  • $0. hehe My son isn't in school yet, but my best friend brought over a huge bag of clothes that used to be her son's. I haven't had time to go through it yet, but it's looking like I won't have to buy my almost 4 year old a fall wardrobe!
