This is for ONE child!
Sam, going into 7th grade, Middle School
Handbook /planner-mandatory: $5.00
P.E. Lock-no personal locks allowed: $5.00
ASB Card: $15.00
School Picture-we chose cheapest pkg: $13.50
Basic school supplies: $50.00
New Back Pack: Thank goodness for sales. We got him a $100.00 backpack from REI for only $30.00!
His half of the new clothes we bought at Old Navy: $100.00
Still needed: new shoes, socks and underwear!
TOTAL: I haven't even added it up, because it would depress me too stinkin' much.
Whew!!!!! Does it cost this much at your kids' schools?
We still have to pay for Austen's school supplies, Community College books, parking pass for High School (for when he is there for band classes) and a parking pass for the college campus, his ASB card, his tux rental, his new pep band shirt and not to mention the $450.00 we just paid for him to take a certain math class at the college.
School starts next Tuesday for our public schools. The community college starts 3 weeks after.
Man, I can't afford to quit work anytime soon, that is for darn sure.
