According to CBS Tampa, parents are going to spend over $500 per child when it comes to back to school shopping.
A survey by the consulting firm Deloitte released its annual back to school survey and found parents will spend an average of $501 per child on clothes, supplies, computers, and gadgets. Parents who shop sooner likely will spend more. Sixty percent of parents who shop back to school sales before August will spend about $532. That’s 16% higher than parents who wait until closer to the start of school to do their shopping.
