According to a recent survey by RetailMeNot (www.retailmenot.com), a leading digital offers destination that helps consumers save money, and Kelton Global (www.keltonglobal), saying goodbye to summer break generally causes parents to feel stress about the financial burden that back-to-school shopping brings. A majority (87%) of parents plan on purchasing new school supplies this year, and more than half (59%) of Americans believe the cost of education has increased since they were in school. Back-to-school spending looks like it will be down slightly from last year ($246 vs. $263 per child). Over a quarter (26%), of all parents plan to spend more than $300 per child and yet, more than 1 in 4 parents (26%) express concern over the cost of their children’s education this year. When to shop? Parents typically spend nearly two weeks on average shopping for back-to-school necessities
