Not until the end of August, beginning of September - right before she goes back to school.  Some stuff I have to hold off on because her teachers don't send home supply lists until after she's back in school.  That's a big pain in the butt because then most of the time it's hard to find those things.

Our school don't have a list lol. Everything is covered but I still buy supplies. I always send my kids with their own stuff. Than extra for the teachers to keep at school for whoever needs them.

I wait until the last possible moment, but that's just how I roll. Queen of procrastination.

I start a few weeks before. We got the supply list at the end of last year so we're able to start working on it over the summer. I went yesterday got most of the stuff on the list. I only have 2 things left to get. We got the kids some clothes yesterday too. Some jeans and tops. Now I just need to get a couple dresses and some skirts for DD and some shoes and we'll be done. I want to be done by next week because school starts August 11th and I want to be done before everybody starts shopping last minute and it gets crowded.

Not until after school starts and everything goes on sale.  We homeschool so there's no time constraint.

I wish she didn't have a list, and of course she has a bunch of teachers and they all require different things,lol
