(Washington, DC) Back-to-school shopping is in full swing.

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 on shoes, clothes, supplies and electronics this year.

It turns out that’s about $50 less than last year.
