very little to none. I buy clothes throughout the year as we need them.

Same here!! I have been fortunate that since my girls were about a size 6, they have been slow growers with no major growth spurts, so I just buy stuff here and there as I see the need for it. Both of my dd's have been in a 10/12 for the past year, their pants are adjustable waist with room to let out and since they have short legs, it just means last year they rolled them and this year they won't need to!

My daughter's too young for school but when I was in school I spent about $100 every year.

I don't know yet. Ds has to have uniforms and this is his first year so I have no previous years to average. I did get a $50 gift card to kmart for the back to school influencer that should come in handy.

I spent about $140 so far. That was for 8 pairs of pants, a sweatshirt, winter coat, 2 pairs of the cold weather slip on shoes (i can't think of their name right now but a lot of nurses wear them), and 1 long sleeve shirt. Nothing from last year fits him, so I'm buying everything new.

$50 is a big help. I found some good prices on Walmart.com
