ditto on the uniform cost savings. em started private school this year, and i didn't spend a dime on other clothes - she had enough that still fit from the previous year to get her through the weekends. next year - everything but her gym t-shirt still fits. when she grows out of it, the girls wear the same polos and gym uniforms as the boys, so she can pass it down to o, and he'll just need winter shirts and pants, and spring/fall shorts. i LOVE it.
