Back to school spending, how much to you envision?
My kids start back to school in September and I already have it in the budget for August to buy back to school stuff. According to the Dallas Morning News, the average family will be spending $669.28 on clothes, shoes, supplies and electronics. I don't see spending quite that much, if this is per child, but together it may be close. Both kids need shoes, supplies are always an arm and a leg (especially with a high schooler) and I'm sure we will be grabbing a few outfits as well. My wallet is already crying, lol.
So, do you think this article is accurate when it comes to back to school shopping? Are you planning to spend about this amount, more or less?
