Back to school shopping can get expensive quickly.
The clothes, the calculators, the pencils, pens, notebooks and paper add up to a hefty bill at the register.
The 2015 National Retail Federation’s Back-to-School Spending Survey showed the average family with children in grades kindergarten through 12 planned to spend $630.36, with total spending reaching about $24.9 billion.
You can reduce the strain on your budget by taking advantage of some of these early deals in the back-to-school shopping season.
