  • thrift stores and consignment...I can't afford retail and he is only going to get them covered in mud, paint, and apple sauce anyway :)

  • Old Navy for uniform slacks and Target for uniform polos. Lands End for a monogrammed sweater. JCPenny for Dress shoes and belts. And Ross Dress for Less for PE shoes.

    I ♥ uniforms!

  • I buy my kids clothes at Kmart, Target, resale shops and sometimes yard sales. I don't have a set spending amount, I buy things as needed or when there are good sales.

  • My kids don't have "school" clothes. They just have clothes and we only buy them stuff when they outgrow our wear out what they have. We shop mainly at Target.

  • We usually go to Target and spend under $100 for each kid. Their summer clothes still fit, so it's pointless to buy new ones.

  • Kohls and Target. It really depends on what we need, but usually around 150 dollars does it.

  • DS goes to a private Catholic school and the uniforms are outrageous in cost. For 2 pair of shorts and 5 shirts it cost $200 and that doesn't include anything for when the weather finally turns cool here, then we'll be back at the uniform shop going crazy again.
