Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Do you have a spending limit for back to school clothes and necessities?

No

But I will most likely only buy one new outfit- just for the first day...they can wear their summer clothes for a while

Once it gets cooler though- the oldest will need pants (he is taller this year) the youngest wears the clothes that I saved from the oldest :) I'm thankful I had two children of the same sex

Yes and no. My oldest is the only one that needs anything. All boys is great even though my middle is destroying clothes now. I try to limit it as much as possible and buy clearance and sale stuff. School supplies I try to keep under 50 but it changes every year with different supplies

Nope. We shop the sales and get what we need.

Both my boys are different sizes. My oldest is husky and my younger boy is skinny and lanky. So I usually buy wranglers 3pairs for theoldest and the youngest has to be made because he's a stick figure with a butt-haha. No but usally 3 outfits/sets and two sneakers each. Then supplies.

50 per kid. Each kid gets ONE new outfit and ONE new pair of shoes.

not really

We try to hit the sales that the NEX has ... that helps out, especially since I pay no tax at that store and he has uniform shirts, so, all I have to do is buy shorts and undies.

Not really, I check and see what they already have, how long I estimate it to last and then I figure out what each one needs.  But I try not to go overboard and I hit alot of sales.
