School Supply Shopping

I went and did a little school supply shopping tonight. I only grabbed what I could remember because I forgot to put the supply list in my purse.
I do not remember Jake's list being so long and detailed last year! Wow!
I figured I would blog about the expenses and see what the grand total is when I am actually done with it.

This post will be updated and crossed off once I actually purchase the items. I estimate it will be roughly $300 for everything including uniforms...not including outerwear, even though we need to purchase larger sizes this year. Really If I had more than 1 kid I would go broke  buying everything!!!!

5 uniform polos
5 uniform pants
2 uniform shorts for hot days (luckily these still fit from last year)
5 undershirts because white polos are see thru
1 approved sweater/sweatshirt to wear in school because only certain ones can be worn (reuse from last year)
1 pair of new shoes
1 backpack

Also needed but optional I socks and underwear. It makes it more fun to have all "new" stuff for a new school year.
Because Jake had a growth spurt we also need :Winter Jacket, Light Jacket for fall and spring plus snow boots, hat and gloves (reused from last year)

Now for the required school supply list!!!

WOW Long time no post!

I have been super busy creating stuff. My entire January thru March was comsumed with bottle caps . My April thru June has been consumed with bottle caps, little league and a few fests.

Maybe you saw me somewhere?
I was at Villa Park Summerfest on June 19th.

I was also at Little Boots Rodeo on June 27th.

Both shows were a blast. I am now addicted to fests LOL I am currently looking for some more fests to participate in. I will keep you updated on shows on my side bar :) Take a look
