Remember to let your kids have some say in the choices when you go out for back to school shopping, this way they will feel proud about getting older and starting a new year. But also stand your ground if they pick something that is too bizarre or outrageous for their classroom. Stick to your budget and check with their school to see if there are certain items they need or are not allowed to bring. Have fun and always let your kids be themselves.
