I just got back from Kohls and Ross, and went to Kmart for the school supplies for both of my kids. $400 later.... I swear it's like buying for Christmas every year! And that's not even including what I had to pay at registration for the student body card and photos, and will pay later for yearbooks, gym clothes, field trips.... If I hadn't put money aside, I'd be in a really tough spot right now. But it's still a tough pill to swallow when these costs come all at once.
Anyone else paying out the nose for the start of school?
