not yet...I'm waiting to see if we were getting the help this year or not. Because we're so poor we are involved in a community/school program to help families with the holidays and school supplies. I got a letter asking if we were wanted in and I never got anything in response so I don't know. 4th and 1st grade supplies aren't too bad. I just hate how we supply them with cleaning supplies and other crap that is covered by the budget.

I don't know what they'll need yet, but they are only going into Kindergarten!  It shouldn't be that bad!

I have 2 daughters in college.  The first year is the most expensive.  Besides books that is every semester.  My girls rent alot of them off some sites on the internet.

Not yet. I haven't found out what all my son needs yet. He is in a life skills class (for special needs children) and I haven't received his list yet.

 That's the advice we have gotten so far...to rent them. I looked on Amazon and couldnt believe the prices of some of the books! My son is going for free the frist 2 years as long as his grades stay up..I'm so grateful for that and just dont see how parents can afford to send their kids to such pricey schools!
