Here 'down under' we are in the middle of the school year so the tips will have to be kept for January. LOL

Just a point here - so many of these tips seem to refer to clothing. In Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain and I know other countries the school children wear uniforms. This is so much easier for everyone - the mums when shopping, the dads when dressing the children (as per one hint today), and especially the children as they know what to wear each day and there is no peer pressure to wear a particular type of clothing. The big plus is that the children always look tidy (well mostly, LOL), and if they are misbehaving out of school then people know which school they go to because of the colour, etc. of the uniform. We find it amazing that your children don't wear uniforms. Is there a reason for that? This applies to infants, primary and high school. Of course, once they leave school and go to university, they do not wear uniforms.

Our kids go to a private school. At least 3 times a year, the school hosts a used uniform sale. It can take some digging but we always find items that still have life in them. We buy the rest new, but do our best to find sales.

One thing you could do to get uniforms, jackets and such is to put a post up on Freecycle or a Yahoo group. We have one here in Jefferson Parish, which is like a county. Maybe you can check to see if you have one in your town or area. You can just post on there asking for what your looking for and hope that somebody has it.

You never know, someone's child could have outgrown theirs and it could be in great shape. I know I have some right here that I am about to list in hopes that someone can use them. I am sure since you're on this site that you are like me and hate to have something not being used when you know someone could be using it. Make sure you post what you have lying around not being used. That way it keeps things fair. Also remember it's Freecycle which means Free
