Budget friendly back to school clothes for Middle School

One thing I like to think about when shopping is the "cost per wear" or CPW.  Meaning, if I pay 100 bucks for an outfit that I wear once, well my CPW is 100 bucks.  But if I spend that same 100 bucks on some jeans and a tee that I can wear, say 10 times, my CPW drops to 10.00 bucks!  Lets assume my daughters each wear an outfit 10 times (that's every 2 weeks for 6 months, give or take) I will show you the cost of the outfit and the CPW for it, the lower the cost, the better value on my clothing!

So what did I buy for my $161.98??  Here are 12 of my daughters favorite outfits!  (Her sister is away at camp this week or she would share her favs too!)
