    Tax free weekend? Is that actually a thing?
  • foolishfoolish Registered User Posts: 894 Member
    I blame canada

    OP: $0 on clothes, $10 on folders

    it's always canada.
    I splurge on back to school. All the notebooks call to me. And all the cute clothes.
    So, probably $30 on binders/pens/paper/locker magnets(?) and $60 on dresses and whatnot

    Clothes: I'm a senior, idc what I wear. Probably will buy sweaters since my school is freezing. Supplies: Spent prob $200 this year because of an expensive calculator I need and the fact my mom likes to buy notebooks in bulk. I've normally got extra school supplies (paper, pens, notebooks, etc.) stored away in the garage so we don't have to keep buying throughout the year.

    Oh, and I start school on August 4th :(

    On clothing: $0 ; I haven't bought new clothing in 6 years
    School supplies: $25; my dad buys these 20 cent notebooks from the supermarket he works at + he gets a discount, so he buys them in bulk, and we find 69 cent binders and bags of pencils at the thrift store.

    There used to be tax free weekend where I live. Not sure if we still have it or not.

    Getting school supplies is actually part of one my summer assignments and yes, we'll get graded for it.
  • z0e101z0e101 Registered User Posts: 293 Junior Member
    Thats crazy that it's a grade. Normally at my school people show up on the first day with an empty bag. We get our syllabi and supply list (unless you came to open house which pretty much no upperclassmen do) and we're expected to have our stuff by the end of the week. There would be a lot of Fs if it was a grade.

    I wish i could just wear sweaters everyday at school ughhh. That would be amazing! and i think i should buy a calculator too but they are too expensive, luckily at my school they provide it to us :))))

    I didn't go shopping tax free weekend last year, but my mom spent $20 at retail stores for clothes.
