S/O of my annoying question. School shopping.

How much school shopping have you gotten done? Do you shop all year or just before, or all summer? Is it as expensive for you as Christmas?

  • girls are both Grad now. I am soooo excited to NOT have to school shop(for clothes, anyway) this year!! I am going to donate some things to the needy box this year though bcz I always wanted to help out Moms who had a tough time providing all that and I couldn't bcz of my own kids. Now ,...I can! a way, I will be school shopping to an extent. :-)

  • I try to do right before school. I wait for things to go on sale and then stock up on things. I usually do school supplies,then maybe backpacks and lunch boxs, then clothes. MIght not be in that order just when I find things on sale.

  • We jsut buy new folders/ pencils/ paper - supply stuff, not clothes really
    we get them a new pair of shoes before school starts usually, but for clothes-we just get them whehnever they need them or if we find a good deal or something...we've never doen the school clothes shopping thing

  • We do the same as charlotsometimes, buy all teh school supplies and new shoes. But as for clothes we just pick up stuff when he needs it. Just depends on what fits and what doesn't. He is a boy and could careless what he wears (other than hating jeans!). I just don't think its necessary.

  • clothes shopping I do all year long.
    school supplies I wait until they go on sale at WalMart and then I usually spend about $25-$40 so we have enough for the whole year.
