I admit it, I don’t look forward to shopping for back-to-school supplies. It’s just another thing to add to my never ending To-Do list. And I’m just like every other mom (and dad) out there who’s working, juggling kids, family and home. I want to spend the least amount of time and money on this annual expedition with the least amount of stress and couponing.

So, in an effort to see what’s really out there and to find out if I can get it done fast and without spending more than the average family on back-to-school supplies (like notebooks, pencils and backpacks), which is a whopping $97.74, according to the National Retail Federation, I will shop brick and mortar AND online to find out what’s best. Is there one that is best?
