Back to School
Back-to-school season is here! Whether you're shopping for your kids, they're shopping for themselves, or some combination of the two, back to school shopping for high school students is a lot simpler with a little forethought and preparation. You can start by figuring out how much of your teen's previous fall and winter clothing is still wearable for the coming school year.
Naturally, they'll want to freshen up their wardrobe with some stylish new pieces, but if they've got a dresser filled with jeans that fit, they'll likely be able to get away with one or two new pairs instead of three or four. To make sure high school kids get everything they need, as well as everything they want, we've created this handy Back to School Checklist to help keep you on track.

If your child is paying, or helping to pay, for their back-to-school purchases, they'll of course have much more say in what they buy. But as parents, you'll still want to make sure the basics are covered and their purchases are appropriate for their purposes.
