$100 Walmart Back to School Haul

The start of the new school year is about a month away. We’re still not completely sure exactly what Stargirl’s year is going to look like, but we have all the information we need for Bug. School starts September 4. We have the school supply list, and we bought most of the supplies.

Since I know I will be scrambling in August to take care of lat minute things for Stargirl, I figured I’d take care of Bug, before the scramble for Stargirl begins.

One of the things I know is that Bug outgrew most of his clothes from last year. I know he needs a new wardrobe for school. And I know Walmart has pretty good prices on clothes.

Walmart challenged me to see how much I could buy for $100. Now, I remember back when I was in high school that $100 was my back to school clothing budget. We won’t talk about how many years ago that was, but suffice it to say, prices have dramatically risen since then. Would I really be able to buy Bug a back to school wardrobe for $100?

See for yourself!

I bought 13 items for $96.07. One pair of shoes, three pairs of pants, and nine shirts. When I add these pieces of clothing to what Bug already had in his closet, he’s set for school until the weather gets a bit colder. Since the cool weather clothes haven’t hit the stores around here yet, I wasn’t able to prepare him for the cold weather. I’ll head back to Walmart when the fall clothes are in, though. Where else can I buy so many items of clothing for less than $100?
