The average family with two children will spend $594 on back to school items. School supplies can add up quickly and take up a big chunk of that money.
We've taken the guess work out of school supply shopping... We went to three stores to compare prices.Whitney Chapa was one of many parents shopping for everything from pencils to markers to notebooks this afternoon. "We've already spent $50 and we are probably going to spend another $100, maybe even $200 more today." Chapa's not the only parent shelling out big bucks getting their kids ready for school.
