I know what back to school shopping can do on a bank account. Buying clothes, shoes, and supplies for kids as they head back to school can be tough sometimes. In fact, studies show that shopping for the back to school season has already begun and parents are already stressing over it.

Back to School

So, how about it… have you started your back to school shopping?

More than 20% of parents start shopping for back-to-school in July, 32 % wait until August and 6% typically wait until school begins (September or after).

Which one are you? My mom was not the procrastinator when it came to school shopping. We began in July and bought pieces here and there when we had the funds. I learned to do the same with my kids. I do not like to stress about everything at the last minute. Plus, I want to make sure we have pretty good selection that has not already been thoroughly picked through.

Roughly 65% of back-to-school shoppers find some aspects of the transition to school stressful, including extra spending, preparing and getting necessary items in time.

Not only are there clothes to buy, but school supplies, lunches, bags, and shoes. Where do you notice most of your budget going as you shop?

Roughly 35% plan to spend the majority of their budgets on clothes, and 15% think at least 30% of their budget will be spent on shoes. In fact, the average person with children in grades K-12 will spend $129.20 on shoes.
