 I've got 2 boys that will be going back to school the first week of Aug. and I haven't even started. My kids have to wear uniforms so I don't have to buy so many clothes at one time. But my 16 year old thinks he has to wear American Eagle and I told him nope unless he was paying for them.

Oh and I have a love/hate thing for the uniforms.  It doesn't really save me money b/c I have to buy other clothes for them to wear when we go places. But the good thing is, you can buy a couple pairs of pants and  couple of shirts to get started.  However, I do think the school board should have let the parents vote on it instead of them deciding it.  Most of them have money and don't have to worry about spending money on uniforms.

School supplies are ridiculous !!! 70.00 and it didn't even get everything on her list. Its not even like a couple folders... Its a specific brand and color. I wish I could just pay them and they could just order everything in bulk for all the students.

If it weren't for my grandma buying uniforms for all 4 of mine and my mom always buys their school supplies, I don't know how we would do it.  They are giving away school supplies at the church across the street from my house next week, I will go and see if I can get what is left on thier list after my mom shops.  All I have to get now is new shoes for the 3 little ones.

I didn't buy everything on their list either. I didn't buy things like copy machine paper and the cleaning supplies they requested like clorox wipes, lysol, large bottle of germx. If I had extra money I might have but goodness the acutal school supplies cost enough!
