  • I bought ds a backpack, lunch box, pencil case, and freezer things to keep his food cold. His b-day is in August so he is getting them for his birthday. and I will wait to see what he needs from the teachers list.

  • I shop a few times a year, because we home school. I bought textbooks and workbooks toward the end of last year for next year while they were on sale. A couple days ago I bought a few organizational things. The crayons, notebooks, glue, folders, etc that they usually do huge sales on are not put out yet, so I will wait until the sales for those.

  • No. Most of the items are donated to the schools. I don't know what my DSs will need.

  • I wait until the stuff goes on sale at WalMart.

  • When the sales start we start getting things we know we will use - paper, pencils, art supplies, etc. I don't plan our entire year out at the beginning so we might need some special items later on, but I buy enough filler paper, glue, etc at the beginning of the year to last through until the next big back to school sale.

  • I have been looking online(tho I dont buy online) at shoes and things, I have only gotten a few shirts so far, but plan to get shoes and backpacks next week I think, if I see any the kids like. I do like to get everything early tho, for best selection.
