Completely depends on who has grown out of what and what can be handed down.  Typically we budget $200 per child.

No set amount of money. I like 5 good jeans 4 shorts and a dawer full off tee shirts. 4 light jackets one winter jacket and 2 pairs of good shoes. We buy clothes often so when its fall I won't have to buy a lot.

Meh. I buy all summer and put them up. Idk how much? The only thing that's bought right before school is shoes and if he needs it, a back pack.

My kids are still in elementary school, so their clothes tend to be cheaper, plus I hit up thrift stores for their jeans. I usually spend about $70 on the uniform shirts ($7 each x 10), plus another $100 between shoes, belts, socks, and underwear. I only have 2 kids btw.

And I buy at the end of the season clearance for the next year. I have a jacket for next year but I think this year's jacket will still fit and is in great shape.

Me nothing. My mom well she gives me a gift card to JC Penneys each year for the kids. Last few years it's been $600 plus a gift card to Wal-Mart worth any where up to $300.
