How much on the average have you spent on back to school supplies per child this year?


Back to school is expensive. Teachers are having to pay for a lot of their classroom supplies due to budget cuts and parents are encouraged to help with some of the supplies for the classroom. The list provided by some schools for each child's needs is sometimes two pages long. If you have children, how much on an average per child have you spent for back to school supplies, including clothing, quality shoes and a quality book bag, and how have you managed to cut costs and stay on budget, if at all? Thank you for answering.

    I had to go and look for dollar amounts - this year we spent about $150 total for both boys. Not too bad :).

    Hello Francine88, yes, clothing is usually what cost the most, especially for teenagers. It is always best to shop around for the best deals and not break your budget. Thank you for answering.
