Happy August! It’s time to start shopping for back to school clothes, shoes, backpack and supplies. According to the National Retail Federation 2011 Consumer Intentions and Actions Back to School survey, the average American family will spend $603.63 on clothes, shoes, supplies and electronics, compared to $606.40 last year. Total spending on grades K-12 is expected to reach $22.8 billion.
I am lucky to get beautiful hand-me-downs from a friend, which saves me lots of money each year, but it’s still not cheap to dress two girls. It’s the shoes that cost so much!
How much do you plan to spend for each child this year? Take our poll…
