Not sure if I'm repeatinf myself, but t's cost the best part of £1k to get the 5 children set for school next month. They all needed everything as they haven't worn uniform since March and have all grown. 2 of them are transitioning schools too, necessitating a complete overhaul.Secondary schools seem to rely on parents much more for books, my daughters A-level books have cost nearly £100. I checked ebay etc beforehand, but the specific ones she needed weren't available, so had to go for new. They also have to wear 'business like attire'. I had £500 set aside, so was caught a bit short. Will be putting less in savings this month to cover the rest.
