Former Real Worlder-turned-blogging mama of five Rachel Campos-Duffy instituted a uniform policy for her three school-aged offspring, even though their classrooms don't require them. In a recent post on Parent Dish, she explained that the economical decision costs about $80 per child annually and excuses her from back to school shopping. She said:

I relieved myself of this torture several years ago when my husband and I decided that a school uniform was the easiest and most affordable way for our growing family to deal with hectic mornings, rising costs, and trends in inappropriate fashion — especially for girls.
