I HATE it when I'm reading a post and it gets deleted! I wanted to know what the most expensive thing she bought was, besides the tablet!
All I can tell you is that when my kids starts school, I'll have spent less than $150 total on supplies, including clothes! Granted, he's only in Kindergarten... lol
EDIT: OH! She was buying for herself (mostly) at a college bookstore. The bulk of the purchases were books. I can believe it- those are incredibly expensive!
