* Do you do an organized "back to school" clothing shopping for your h/s'er?

Since dh is an electrician, he has not been working much the last 2 1/2 years and I work only part time. Budgets have been very tight. We have always been quite frugal though. I am big on resale shops, thrift stores, and the back sales racks. I usually get the kids back to school clothes after school actually starts, I want them to look around and see what styles they like that are popular. I would hate to buy something and not have it used. We also buy things as they go out of season. Dd and I were shopping the sales rack at a Van Maur, they had spring (prom) dresses on final clearance. They were marked down, and down and down. Dd and I found a dress that was her style, she LOVED it and it fit her like a glove. It is wonderful, so it sits in the attic for 10 months!! All for the grand total of $10!!

I forgot to add, I get the basics, but since dd works, the Coach purses (she finds at resale shops) and such are on her dime, not mine.

I had forgotten about looking in the resale shopps for purses. Nik wants a Coach purse & the resale shop is a great place to look for one.
