Back to School

This is my July back to school haul.  I found an amazing clearance deal.  I'm sure you can guess where.  :o)  Nothing was more than $5.50!  Most was $1 or $2.  I had a 20% off coupon and everything was marked down low.

And I had to pick up these super cute shoes for myself.  ;o)
(at less than $5, why not!)

I can't believe that it's August already.  And my BABY.  My sweet little girl starts her very first year of school this month.  She will be a Kindergartner.  This is such a bittersweet and momentous event in our lives. 

Being the planner that I am, I have been back to school shopping here and there, for oh...a year, haha.  I counted the shirts that I have for her a few days ago...I pulled out my "stash" of clothes I've been tucking away in her closet.  There were 21.  Yeahhh...  I went out yesterday and bought her a couple pairs of shoes (and grandma got her the pair of tennis shoes that she has been asking for!), and some jeans but I think all I really need now is just a lightweight fall jacket, some sweaters/hoodies and then some heavier winter outerwear...and to let her pick out a couple of folders.  I think I posted last year that I had already bought her a backpack and lunchbox, haha...last years back to school clearance. 

I still can't believe she is starting school already.  I have been thinking about getting her teacher a First Day of School gift of some sort.  Tiny Prints has a lot of great ideas in their back to school section.  Check it out and tell me what you think.  Do you do gift for your child's teacher on the first day of school?
