Back to School.... if you don't mind my asking... $$ question
just wondering how much on average do you spend on clothes/school supplies/fresh hair do's for sending your kids back to school?
My DD is 14 and I did a pretty good job of spacing out the clothes shopping but I think I wound up spending way more money than if we had just gone and done a big clothes run
Also, after too many years of buying supplies, only to be foiled by teachers asking for her to have exactly the opposite of whatever it was that we bought (3ring binder bought, NO 3 RING BINDERS, spiral paper notebook, NO SPIRAL PAPER NOTEBOOKS, etc...) I sent her to school today with a tablet, a calendar style note book some pens and pencils and that's it!
she's writing down what she needs from the teachers that don't have prepared supply lists
the 'new do' is this weekend
she wants 'ombre' hair... I had to google it...she can have it if her grades after 1st marking period are honor roll
