Back in my day, there was no back to school shopping.  Mom just put me in hand-me-downs and said I could get a Trapper Keeper when I got a job.

According to a new survey, parents are spending an average of $244 to send each kid back to school this year.  Here are the main costs:


1.  New clothes and shoes, $130.

2.  Equipment for their sports or clubs, $33.

3.  School supplies and a backpack, $47.

4.  Technology, $34.

The survey, by Nationwide Credit Cards, also found 11% of parents will turn to their parents to get them to pay for some of that.
