I know. Took my kids school shopping this weekend...so glad that's over. Their small 3A school district went to uniforms this year :/ My kids are boots and jeans kind of kids so it cost me a small fortune in boots, dress shoes, dress pants, pencil skirts, capris and solid color shirts (button up and polos).
My small fortune was spent on Art supplies for DD15. When you start taking specific art classes, they require specific items .. high dollar. Makes me wonder how many talented poor kids fall through the cracks because they can't afford the art supplies??
