Parents couldn't be happier when it's time for kids to go back to school until they go school shopping. Yes, of course, you have to get the requirements the school asks for, but we forget about new clothes, shoes, food, etc...

We went online to Walmart.com and Famousfootwear.com, took the list from the Laramie County School District #1 K-6 and added it all up.
