Time to go back to school


by Jessica Gruenling

ANCHORAGE, Ak-- August is just two days away, and students know that that means. It's back to school month.

The cost of school supplies has gone up over the years.

According to the National Retail Association the average family will spend 637 dollars on all back to school items like footwear, apparel, electronics, and classroom supplies.    

If it seems too early to be back to school shopping the survey also shows that 24 percent of parents are doing their shopping at least two months in advance.
