    My daughter is starting kindergarten this fall and they haven’t supplied us with a list yet. All the good sales went on in July and continuing through early August, by the time the school supplies us with the list, there won’t be anything left.

    @SavingsMommie: Have you checked the school district’s website? It might have the list.

    I went school shopping today. For my six kids I spent a total of $180. After reading this I think i did pretty good.

    @JaneHinrichs: That’s amazing! I once did a breakdown of what it would cost to get all the items on a standard school supply list and it ended up totaling $80. $30 per kids is an awesome feat.

    My son wore school uniform so it was standard rate for everyone. Where we lost out on money was that my son kept growing so fast. He’d grow out of his shoes just a few months after we bought them. Sigh.

    when we sent our two kids to college, we found tons of unique stuff at TheGoodLifeOnCampus.com. My kids are pretty picky and don’t really like getting the same things everyone else gets from Target or Bed, Bath and Beyond. TheGoodLifeOnCampus had lots of ideas that fit their personalities.
