Ok, so that time of year is coming soon. Where do you take your kids shopping? What is the usual list of clothing to get? How much do you get? Do you have any tips or tricks to save money when you are school clothes shopping?

I took my kids back to school shopping on Thursday we bought most of the clothes at JcPenny. I like to go there when they are having there buy one get one for a dollar sale I just get my son some jeans and then shirts to go with them as you can wear jeans more than once usually.

I agree, Penny's has some good sales sometimes. I will have to watch when they are having a buy one get one for a dollar sale though. Thanks!

Well I don't have kids but I usually go with my sisters to go school clothes shopping. We usually go to stores that are right around us. Ross, Kohls, Fashion bug, and a few other stores as well. My sister is really wanting to go to the mall this time, we used to go there but ever since they opened up this little shopping center we always go there. I don't know if my mother is going to take her to the mall or not this year. We usually get them a few shirts for summer but we try to do mostly winter clothes shopping because the majority of the school is in the winter. They only have a little bit of time that they have when they are in school in hot weather. I don't really have any tips, If you have some I would like to hear them. We usually end up spending the most on jeans because both me and my sister are short and when I was in school it was like if I found a pair of jeans that fit I better get them no matter how much money they were. I can't believe it's already time for school shopping. Feels like they just got out of school.

Luckily for me my sons wear a uniform to school so all i have to do is send in their measurements and then selects what items I want for them. I think they will be in this week for me to pick up at school. I will still get them some new things to wear outside of school with their friends and stuff but that is about it.
