We skip the new clothes until the weather actually gets cooler. They wear shorts the first couple of weeks anyway and I have enough other things to spend my money on in August. They usually get one new outfit for the 1st day, but that's it.
school supplies (1 set for each kid plus extras for home while it's all on sale, in addition to another full set for each kid to donate to our city's school supply drive)
tons of Kleenex, Clorox wipes, and hand sanitizer for the classroom.
snacks for the classroom.
bag/backpack (I buy a decent one that can last two years)
school pictures (they do them the second week of school already)
club dues (just chess this year thankfully)
Luckily as you are dealing with K, you probably won't have sports of club fees.
