I’m not going to win any Mom Of The Year awards by saying this…but I do NOT make Back To School shopping a big event. 2 out of 3 of my kids have July birthdays, and the other one often gets his birthday gifts from his grandparents at the same time as the other 2…and they often get new clothes, back packs, etc. so there’s really no need for an extravagant shopping trip. I do hit Dollarama for the supplies needed, and if anyone needs anything then sure they get it. But that’s as far as it goes!
According to this study, most Canadian parents will be digging deeper into their pockets this year. Apparently, spending will be an average of $428 PER KID!! Maybe that’s why I don’t do it…I couldn’t afford to. 😉 Of course my kids are still young too. I can see the spending increase as they need fancier technology and stuff.
How much will you spend per kid?
