Will you be spending less on back-to-school shopping this year?



I've gotten phone calls and e-mail reminders from school officials already about back-to-school shopping. Yes, there are still a few weeks of summer fun left, but looks like school shopping time has arrived.

It can be  a stressful time, particularly when money is tight. Our friends at Things to Do have tried to relieve some of that stress by highlighting some great back-to-school deals.

The Times' back-to-school coverage this year focuses on cutbacks at schools and how students will be affected. We'd like to hear whether belt tightening is affecting shopping for the students in your life. There's not much parents can do about the school supply list, but what about the new outfits, latest sneaker style or backpacks?
