For a generation of students, the phrase "summer is over" is the most dreaded one ever. But it's true: The fall 2017 semester is imminent!

The beginning of August marks the official back-to-school season and it's accompanied by a flood of incredible back-to-school sales on everything from school supplies to apparel and electronics.

I am in my early 30s now and I remember the back-to-school days in my home country, Venezuela. I always wanted the latest "Disney Movie" backpack, and all the supplies that came with it; the Princess Belle lunch bag, the Beast pencils, and of course all the notebooks with images of the beauty and the beast.

I always looked forward to back-to-school shopping with my parents every year. Lucky for them, computers and other electronics were not big back then or even a necessity for homework, I would just use my typewriter for my important assignments.

If you are a parent in this digital era, I feel for your pockets, and If your kids are going back to school this fall then you already know what's coming… the inevitable "Mom, Dad, can I have this overly priced Spiderman backpack pleeeaaase?" or "Mom, I really need this laptop for school work, not for social media or anything else, for homework, I swear!" Sound familiar?

Recently I came across an online article that claimed the average American spends over $210.00 per child and about $430.00 per family on back-to-school shopping, according to a recent survey from All I could think about was, "ouch," especially if you have a couple of kids, that's a lot of dough.
