Boy will be starting primary school in September (my baby! ) and I'm wondering how many tshirts, jumpers, pairs of trousers he'll need to see him through the week...?
I imagine it can get pretty expensive too. Where is the best place to get things that are good quality but don't cost the earth? He has to have a school jumper but the tshirts and trousers can be from anywhere I guess!
I know its not the same but Dec is at Nursery and I make sure he has a clean uniform for every day plus a spare just incase, he has 6 trousers, 6 jumpers and about 12 poloshirts. He also has 3 pairs of school shoes as I read somewhere it is not good to wear the same shoes every day and they should be given a days rest inbetween (this may be not be true but it has stuck in my head lol)
2 or 3 polo shirts (not sure yet how many we'll actually get as that's his summer uniform and i haven't bought them yet)
10 pairs of long socks
5 pairs of short socks
The only reason he has 3 pairs of shorts is that he still wets about 2 times per week (and yes he does wear shorts all year round - his choice!!)
I buy all the uniform from the designated school shop. Personally i wouldn't say it's expensive although loads of people say it is and will buy supermarket uniform even though it's against the uniform policy. We spent about £100 for the whole uniform including his book bag and pe bag. Given that he is in his uniform mon-fri and so only wears his regular clothes mon-fri afternoons and sat/sundays we have saved a heck of a lot of money on his regular clothes. Therefore what we saved on his regular clothes we spent on his uniform. We've also saved by him wearing shorts all year round. At least he hasn't worn through the knees lol. Although we didn't specifically buy much bigger it looks like all the uniform will last the whole of reception and various things like the shirts and jumper and most of the pe kit are going to last him Y1 too.
