Back to school shopping is in full effect.
With many children headed back to class in just a few weeks parents are already surfing the web for school supply deals.
According to the national retail federation, families with school-age children will spend about 635 dollars on shoes, clothes, supplies and electronics this year.
That's about 50 dollars less than last year.
Total back-to-school spending is expected to top 26-billion-dollars this year.
