My kids did not go with me when I did the bulk of their back to school shopping. They will come with me to pick out their bookbags, shoes and clothes. Good thing ds2 and ds3 won't need much clothes but ds1 needs a new wardrobe.

My kids don't have budget for back to school. I buy all that they need. Now I do give them a little extra cash did get a WANT and they do well stretching that money.

Got some of my oldest son school supplies from work because I get a good discount and one item he need was on clearance but whatever I couldn't get at my work I got at target. Now we just need sneakers and an outfit for the first day.

My boys are still little. Hopefully I'll remember this when they start school.
