Back to School Countdown Day 5: School Shopping

Posted by   + Show Post

Sit down and look at what each of your kids need for new clothes. Do they need new pants or long sleeve shirts? Make a list of what you have to buy so you don't end up getting unnecessary items. Then wait for sales!

What do you kids need this year?

Ds needs everything. I bought him new underwear over the summer, new winter socks, new shoes, 8 pairs of pants, a sweatshirt, and 2 long sleeve shirts.

Ds grows so much and nothing from last year fits him.

I got my boys' clothes at garage sales.  My older son insisted on wearing only long sleeves & pants most of the summer (despite it being a hot & humid summer here) so his school clothes got a bit more worn than I wanted.  Luckily, he does have enough stuff that isn't stained or too worn, though, that I only needed 1 pair of pants & 2 shirts to feel like he has enough school clothes.  Plus a pair of shoes.  I got the pants & shirts on sale, just need to find shoes.

 That's exactly what my dh and I did. We got shoes, pants, a couple of dresses, socks, undies, long sleeve and short sleeve shirts.

I bought a lot of end of season clearance clothes for my kids last year and saved them but I still have a few more things to buy.

I had to buy all new pants for my oldest 2 because all theirs ha holes in the knees. My youngest needs new everything because he hit a massive growth spurt this summer and outgrew almost everything. Dd is good for the most part. I am buying her some things though just so she has something new..

My DS need jeans, shirts, shoes and school supplies. Oh, and a new lunch box. I buy things on sale and always watch out for deals.
