I don't want to think about how much I spend. I have four going back this year. I do shop sales and clearance.

For 3 kids its gonna cost me about $800. Includes school supplies, shoes, clothes and few extras.

I shop year round so not sure, maybe $100 for the older two total, more if they need shoes

About a $100 or so. We also buy clothes on the tax free weekend.

I have three girls so school shopping is always big for me but I try very hard to stay on the clearance racks which isn't always easy now since my girls are older.

We have no set budget for back to school shopping, but look for sales and buy whatever is needed.
