I actually haven't bought any clothes or shoes at all. Everything still fits, is in good shape, and it is still hot out. I'll look and see what they need once the weather starts to cool down....
I feel like my supply list was a mile long, but it actually came out to only about $25 a kid. Plus the school wanted money for this and that (supply fee on top of the supplies??) so another $20 or so for Carrie. And a $10 lunch bag and $30 bookbag. I shelled out for the LL Bean bag because I feel like they last so long. Beth is on her fourth year of the ll bean bag and it still looks good.
We do not have to buy any school supplies here, everything is provided.
Sometimes they'll ask to bring a pencil case or a few glue sticks or some tissue boxes to share, but nothing is mandatory. All school supplies (pencils, notebooks, crayons, etc,) are provided free.
Now uniforms I have to buy (mostly for Natasha since Veronika gets her stuff), but it's more of a navy & white dress-code, so I can buy clothes at Old Navy, Gymboree, TCP, etc. I bought Natasha some new pants and Veronika a new jumper, but many items from last year still fit. They got new shoes, new backpacks & lunch boxes too.

I did pick up a lunch bag as well. I checked out the LLbean ones but bought a Pottery Barn one instead. Ellie had her heart set on an Owl Print one so I gave in. Unless something happens to it, I imagine she won't "out-grow" it for many years.
Not sure on clothes because I bought things here and there over the summer. The dress code is tough because of our weather here and no shorts are allowed. Uniforms would be easier for me than having to check that their skirt hits the knee, etc. Our supplies were very reasonable thankfully. I think it was around $20 to cover both girls.
