How about just college tuition alone. That's why top ramen exists. So college students don't go hungry.

I buy supplies and donate to our local school all thru the year. Mine are grown and gone but love to look & buy.

We homeschool, so the majority of our back to school spending is on curriculum and books.

All of the above pretty much. My youngest will be joining in the mix this year starting kindergarten, so it is a bit overwhelming when on an already tight budget.

I love to shop new clothes for work, but it has to be really good for me to buy. I won't buy junk! For some reason I'm not drawn to cheaply engineered, low quality items.

My son hardly used some of his last year school supplies because the school provides some for their students. And his bag is in perfect condition. My problem is clothes & shoes for he is growing so fast.

All of the above, except, "not something I worry about". I have a teenage daughter and the beginning of school is very stressful to me. I am a widow and we did not have life insurance.(my husband was only 48) I get anxiety just thinking about it. Teenagers can be very mean to others if they don't have the right clothes, shoes, phone, etc. Besides this list you still need money for book rental, gym clothes and shoes, and lunch money. I do not qualify for help due to being $22 over the income limit. My daughter can't even join a sport because it cost to much. But, I pray and I know that God hears me, so I keep on having faith in him.

I know that feeling. I'm so glad to see other mothers who understand this. When i was younger I didn't have the right clothes or the right phone and I constantly got teased. I ended up either having to viciously lashout at my tormentors, or be the bully myself and make fun of them for having the right stuff. I hated it. I had to do what I had to to survive, but I hated it so much.

It seems like every year the "back to school sales" start earlier and earlier. I saw a "back to school" commercial in June!...I take advantage of the sales: refresh the wardrobe and buy office supplies.

My kids are in college. Back to school supplies are last on my worry list. I have college tuition (2 in law school and 1 in environmental engineering)to pay.

Back to school supply can include a new Iphone or a faster new model of a laptop especially since your kids are in college the one who is doin environment engineering can also use a canon HD camera those gadgets should b taken as school supply becoz in college u do need a laptop and a smart phone.

my kids have uniforms (which I think are stupid and do nothing to promote learning as several studies have shown even though school districts refuse to believe it) we spend over $500 a year at the start of the year, then we have to pay almost $200 a child to register at the PUBLIC school. On top of that we have to supply all the paper (including copy paper 3 reams a student per class) soap, paper towels, dry erase markers, erasers and cleaner (you'd think 20+ erasers would last a couple years, but I guess not) by the time we are done we are over $1200 and only for 2 kids. How people with 4 or more can do it is beyond me

I dont think uniform is a bad idear I think a uniform forms somekind of unity in students imagine if ther was no uniform the poor wil b exposed becoz they will hav to come to school wearing d same clothes while d rich or affording students come in Gucci and cool clothes

I think uniforms are good because the way youth dress nowdays, at least they'll be dressed decently.
LadyJavert

But that really doesn't help. It's something everyone has to learn! WHen you are 18 and in the real world in College or the Workplace, you are going to run into rich people who can afford things and poor who can't.

I switched to online public school. None of the expense. Buy clothes when needed. School supplies we buy is pens and pencils, paper, and maybe a calculator if. We have no registration fees, school provides computer equipment and reimburse you the cost of the internet. They provide books and supplies such as paint and brushes for an art class, a microscope for a science class. They have advanced classes for students and special education services for children with disabilities. My family has saved so much on school that we take a vacation every year. Since they do their studies online, we even get to take advantage of off peak seasons and vacation any time of the year rather than waiting for a school break. not for everyone, but been a blessing and money saver for my family. I have two kids, one at the top of her class and one entirely in special education with speech therapy and horse therapy at a nearby ranch that the school set up, and I am a single mom.

I would love to know a little more about how that works with special needs. Esp how they set up horse therapy also :) Looking into options for my son with special needs...

I don't get to do any 'Back to School Shopping'. By the time we pay for registrations etc, I have to scrape up enough to get the pencils and notebooks. I just have to hope that their jeans and shoes will suffice for a few more paydays. This is when Christmas starts to nag at me too. Trying to pay for everything and hearing that Christmas is but X number of days away makes me hate the whole fall season.
