    I wonder if it makes a difference on how much you pay for the uniform to whether you leave it on or off. My DS's shirt is $43, his jumper is $58 and his shorts are $36. His sports uniform is $44 for the top, $29 for the shorts and $68 for the jumper. I can't afford to buy a different set for every day of the week and I would hate if it got ripped at home when he can just get changed into his Kmart brand clothes.

    There's a very strict rule here....uniform stays on or you run around in your undies. I'm not creating more washing for myself! Plus we're rebels and shower before dinner so there's no risk of it getting dinner all down the front of it.

    DD1's school dresses were $48 each...they don't look worn. She'll grow out of them before they need replacing.

    I always stayed in my uniform after school...it was just never a big deal.

    The rule here is shoes off and in the cupboard, unpack your bag and wash your hands.

    Monday's SD gets changed into her swimming clothes (so swimmers and a dress in summer or pants/shirt in winter) as we have lessons at 5pm.

    Tuesday's she's either changed straight after emptying her bag into play clothes or dance/gym clothes depending on the week.

    Wed-Fri she is in after-school care so has a shower and into pj's pretty much as soon as we get home about 5:45ish.

    Everyday her uniforms go into the wash and I wash clothes twice a week (tues and fri nights) even though she has five uniforms.

    Yes. My reasons are:

    * uniforms are expensive, and I dont want them warn out unecessarily.
    * uniforms need to be washed for the next day, so they sooner they are available for washing, the sooner they can start drying.
    * to teach responsibility for the childs own possessions.

    Yes,uniform straight off,for 2 reasons.
    I am too povo to buy another one right now,so he only has ONE school shirt,so I get 2 days out of it.
    And 2nd reason,I want it to last as much as I can,and washing fades it.I WILL be buying him some more shirts soon,but start of year is just crazy for bills right now.,
    Even if he did have a few uniforms,I think its best to get straight out of them after school to save them from ruin.

    My kids get changed when they get home,empty bags, lunch boxes on the sink. I make them get changed purely cuz the play outside when they get home and on a light blue polo shirt the stains are impossible to get out! I am a believer that school uniform is cheap, when you consider how much it gets worn but yep changed when get home. Really what is another two sets of clothes in the whole scheme of household washing... It never ends any way!!

    Her uniforms are $85 to $95 each (sports one cheaper than academic) but this is her 4th year out of them, and 3rd year out of the academic tops. She runs around, jumps on the trampoline, plays on swings. I guess it comes down to quality, not price. She attends a private school.

    bath time here is 4.30-5ish so it makes no sense for the kids to change then have a shower less than 2hours later and change again

    so they stay in uniform unless we're going out.
    they have 3 shirts/skorts each and they last atleast a year. infact dd3 was wearing dd1's sz4's in kindy last year, dd2 had also worn them the year before

    public school and tees cost $27, skorts/skirts $19, jackets $37.

    i buy trackies from best n less lol $11 bargains!

    Yes I like dd to take uniform off and straight into the washing machine because she wants to take it off anyway to put normal clothes on so by saying uniform straight in the washing machine it saves me from later on having to treasure hunt where she stripped off. She has 3 sets so I really only have to wash every wednesday and Saturday.

    Shirts were $30 each
    Skorts were $20 each
    Socks were $10 for 10

    I'll be buying a school jacket closer to winter no idea how much and I'll get trackies in shops wherever is cheap.

    I'm not worried about wear and tear she will grow out of them before that's a problem I think she gets tall fast.

    Me and She - 4
