School Days

I was talking to my daughter the other day about the cost of school supplies and she was a little suprised when I said "just wait until Julian goes to school, It cost me anywhere from $300. to $500. for supplies not including clothes." It's funny how much products have gone up. Even with all the back to school sales it still is very expensive to send 5 kids to school. Here is an idea of what I spend.
Backpacks: $15.00 to $25.00 X 5= $100.
Shoes: $15.00 to $25.00 X 5= $125.
Pearl Harbor Kai shirts for the boys $12.00 each X 4=$48.
Notebooks: $4.00 to 9.00 X 4= $$16.00 to $$36.
Pens and pencils $3.00 X 4= $12.00
crayons and markers $$1.00 to $3.00 X 4= $$16.00
lunch packs $5.00 X 4= $20.00
etc.
Well I think you all get the pictures. No more prices like back in the old days. In fact Jr. asked me the other day why they called the little pieces of candy you got at the corner store penny candy. I said It used to cost a penny. How funny is that? Now penny candy cost a nickel or more. Anyone have anything to add to the back to school list?
