$20.00 total for my younger three sons. I have so many unused boxes of crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc. from previous years plus scissors, pencil boxes, rulers, folders, packs of paper, etc. The only "supplies" I have to buy are tissue hand sanitizer and other "non-school" supplies.
My oldest is going to 9th grade I haven't looked at the list for him, not sure what my "budget" is for high school supplies. I will just get what is on the list.

I dont have one.. because the supplies I buy are for us adults!


I just collect the sale items, throw them in a bin and when we need em we need em!


However, probably a bit extra than usual this year. I wont be starting school until winter since I'm in a wheel chair.. and I am NOT paying full price then! 


And.. i'm sending s.o. to go get crayons, colored pencils, scissors and glue, so I can entertain myself a little here!

I stock up at the after back to school clearance at Target every year, so I've got nothing to buy :-D I probably spent $2 total for what DS needs this year- 5 notebooks, 1 box of crayons, 5 folders, gluesticks, 1 box of colored pencils, and pencils. Everything was about 10 cents each! He is reusing his scissors, pencil sharpener and pencil case from last year. Wipes and Kleenex will come from our stockpile as well! He doesn't want a new backpack or lunchbox either, I've asked. He doesn't care about new anything.
I stocked up on jeans at Children's place when they were about $8 each, and I bought NWT shirts at the kids 2nd hand store. He does however need new sneakers, and I don't buy the cheapest for those since he does need a little more support than a typical child.
DD is preschool and I bough her jeggings and leggings at TCP for $4-$5 each. She'll get new sneakers too. Her backpack is fine, even though she wants a new Tinkerbell one lol.
