It may not be hard to believe but about half of parents say they are looking forward to their children going back to school.

More than one-in-ten said that they are actually “thrilled” about it.

But when it comes to getting their kids ready for the first day, a lot of parents seem to be dragging their feet.

More than half of parents say they have not started back to school shopping. About one-in-four parents say they will wait until after the first week of school to go bargain hunting.

So, sorry kids, you may have to show up on your first day of class with last years clothes on.
