How much do you spend? My daughter is entering first grade and I spent a lot of money last year. I just want to know what the average amount that people usually spend.
Thanks!~

I have 8 kids and I usually spend about $200 on each of them (includes new back packs).

Between clothes, shoes & new socks & panties we spent about $200.00 last year... I'm trying to cut that down this year, I've gotten a lot of stuff on clearance already & she's almost ready for school...

I only spent $74. but it was because I got him tennis shoes,underwear and 2 outfits all at sears, His b-day is in Sept,It stays warm here till Oct. so there is no point in buying winter,he can wear shorts to school, that's not including school supply's.

I spen less than $150 dollars for each of the three kids.
BUT, we have a "dress code" almost like a uniform, and the clothes are pretty generic, no logos allowed.  So I get a lot of things from the ARC store or Goodwill.
The school also has a fundraiser closet sale.  You donate clothes that have been outgrown and then 2 or 3 times a year, they do a sale.

Remember that anything is possible, as Paul wrote to the Philippians, "I can do all things through him who strengthens me." (Phil 4:13 NRSV)

I truly believe that He will help you do anything, if you just remember to ask Him.

I'll say I'm gonna spend $200 but it's very likely that I'll go over

We actually went to Gordman's (our son is starting preschool soon) and we spent about $300 on him and actually bought him 2 pairs of name brand shoes (one for school and one for dress-up), 7 pairs of jeans, 8 outfits, about a dozen shirts. They have alot of really cute clothes for relatively cheap! All we have to buy now for this fall and winter are pj's and sweatsuits.
