Thanks for posting.  I have most of my school supplies but I always stock up on diapers since they are also tax free.

I went ahead and caved, bought some uniforms this past weekend online for the kids, with a hefty $9+ tax on just one order.   I haven't bought school supplies yet, I might wait those out for tax free day.

Are you waiting for tax free days for school supplies?

Pass. Should just cut and paste my reasons from last years discussion lol! Have most of the supplies bought. Have to get one kid a backpack but that will be an online order. Other kids backpack is in near perfect order and this will be her third year using it. Check out Landsend.com can't recommend their backpacks highly enough. That's also where my diaper bag was from when they were little. Indestructible!

I already bought all my son's school supplies and just need to get him socks.  He can still fit into last years shorts which are in like new condition and picked up his school tees for 8th grade (got a $3 discount on each  one for handing in last years shirts). Got him shoes and hoping they still fit when school starts. Just in case I have the receipt on the fridge. Have a feeling he's going through another growth spurt with all the food he's been piling in his belly. Between May and early July he grew a half inch.  Killing me....LOL
