The National Retail Federation says this year will be the most expensive ever for back to school shopping. Americans will spend $41.5 billion on back to school supplies. That’s up from $36.9 billion last year. Other findings: 
– the average family will spend $890 on school supplies or $25 more than last year
– 69% of families expect to buy at least one electronic item for this school year 
– biggest reason why back to school supply prices are rising.. inflation followed by longer school supply lists 

I get it!! These lists get longer every year!!! This is just for my 1st grader … Might need to rethink this Mega Millions thing!!! YOU at least can sign up for Employee of the Day! KOSI 101 Employee Of The Day
