Even Hollywood celebrities like to save money—especially when it comes to back-to-school shopping for the kids. Nurse Jackie star Edie Falco recently said that she'll buy androgynous clothing for her children—because her kids grow out of them super-fast. "It's hard to justify spending a lot of money on kids' clothes, because they grow out of them in five minutes," said Falco. "And my kids don't really care what they wear. So I occasionally buy something for my son, and he wears it until he grows out of it, and my daughter wears it. I just make sure that it's unisex." [Momlogic]
