How many ‘sets’ do you buy?
I’ve left it really late to get my son his uniform. They go back on the 15th, so two weeks exactly today!
I need to get him to try on the trousers and shirts I bought near the end of last year and see if they still fit or if like, i suspect; he’s taken a growth spurt.
I’ve been thinking along the lines of 1 for each day of the week, but I don’t feel that clothes should be washed after every wear. (taking laundry into consideration – i wash most wednesdays and sundays for school clothes) Maybe 3 sets of polo shirts, jumpers and trousers, and also get single shirts in 2 or 3 sizes, as he needs to wear them only a handful of times throughout the year. May as well buy them whilst deals are on them.
Here is my list of essentails for school.
- Waterproof jacket
- 2 red sports jumpers
- 1 school branded red jumper
- 2 white polo shirts
- 2 school branded polo jumpers
- 3 pairs of grey trousers
- 1 shirt
- 1 school tie
- grey socks
- P.E. kit – red shorts, t-shirt
- school shoes
- school bag
Now to find out the prices locally.
Quick estimate is £189. not including the tie or shirt as i have those. or the bag as i picked up a teenage mutant ninja turtle one around easter for £6 _________________________________________________________

- 2 red branded jumpers
- 1 branded polo shirt
- 1 branded p.e. shirt
- 1 branded p.e. shorts
- 1 pair of plimsoles

Still to get the shoes!
