School Shopping: Slim pickings this year?

Is it just me, or do the prices and selection seem smaller than usual this year?

I've also tried to shop for school clothing, but it's not out yet. Usually this time of year is bumping for back to school deals. Am I the only one feeling this way?

Maybe it's just me: I could swear by the middle of July the start of the back to school madness begins. Maybe I'm getting old lol.

School here starts August 1st and supplies are just now going on sale and they have very little out in uniform yet. :/ I was hoping to get a little each week so we wouldn't have to buy so much at once but no such luck.

I think it depend on when school starts in your area. They don't start school here in August...but in September

Idk. I just hope my kids don't end up in the district with uniforms... I have no interest in spending extra money on them. I have to buy them all new Fall/Winter clothes since we are moving to a colder climate after 4 years living in a warmer climate. getting a bunch of plain polos, and bland khakis aren't exactly what I want to add to the list. Of course if it works out that way I'll just have to suck it up, and buy them.
