    I'm not even thinking about that yet! My baby is starting high school at St. Basils this year so I guess I'll be taking out a second mortgage for his uniforms His courses are mostly done on his laptop so there won't be much to buy. (hopefully)

    OMG yes the uniforms are expensive. The pants alone are 47.00 each and the shirts are 25.00. I have 2 kids that go there so....yep it's expensive. I forgot about shoes! Usually my guys buy their own. The like the Nike etc...I match them half and half. There is no way I'm paying 120.00 for 1 pair of shoes. LOL, especially for a boy. They are lucky if they get 4 months out of them.

    Very expensive! Can you buy a few used sets? That is what I would do . Once they are washed and dryed. People try on new clothes in the store and people don't wash them before they are worn.

    That is what I did on everything.paid for half. even his dirtbike.
    My boy was horrible on shoes,

    I just picked up a pair of running shoes, kids 12.. 25.99

    I am done....got some great deals on backpacks, pencil cases and lunch bags at Bentely in the Cambrian Mall. They have tables set up outside the store. Some lunch totes were only $2.99 To top it all off if you buy 2 or more items they are on sale even more! Under $40.00 (Including tax) and I got 3 backpacks, 3 pencil cases and 3 lunch totes!

    My daughter, mother of four 18, 15, and two @ 12 started shopping with a spring in her step and a song on her lips two weeks ago. She insists the kids tag along so she can enjoy their misery first hand. Her first bus of the year ceremony is a sight to behold. She wears a white full length frilly, fru fru nighty and skips bare foot just ahead of the first bus for a block scattering rose petals and singing "It's the most wonderful time of year". I am getting verclempt, I must go now.

    You could always do mine for me, if you are feeling left out! I usually leave it until the last week of August so I can live in denial for as long as possible.
