When buying new school clothes...
Fri, 08-16-2013 - 11:26am

I'm taking Jake shopping for new school clothes this weekend.  I'm wondering how you all do it.  Do you stock up for the entire school year?  Buy just a few new items? How do you tackle back-to-school clothes shopping?

I really don't buy anything unless they really need it.  None of my boys are that into clothes, and don't really care too much either way.  I buy stuff as they need it, they are all picky about what they like to wear.  I do need to take the twins for new sneakers, Sean got some earlier in the summer when he wore his last pair out.  Devin can still fit into both pairs I bought him last fall!  It's nice when their feet stop growing ;)

We get stuff as he needs, but we did get him two new pairs of jeans.

We get stuff as they need it, too. It's such a pleasure having all boys in the house now. No more complete bts wardrobes. LOL!
