As I was typing up the school supply deals for this week, I started wondering: how much does it really cost to go “back to school”?
I was homeschooled and don’t think we ever bought school supplies as an “event”. I’m sure we bought a few notebooks and pencils, but pencil boxes? Staplers? Post-It notes? Sharpies? No need for a backpack, for sure – though I do remember buying one when I attended my first courses at a community college when I was in high school!
So, I’m just curious: how much do you spend on “back to school”? Do you buy absolutely everything on the school supply list? Is this a time of year that you buy your kids new clothes?
What have you found to be necessary, and what can be skipped?
