Moneyonthego.net: Online Retailers Alleviate Stress Linked to Back to School Shopping
Back to school shopping is a common activity across the United States—one that can be very stressful for parents. Moneyonthego.net explains how online retailers can alleviate some of this stress and improve the back to school shopping experience.
St. Petersburg, FL (I-Newswire) August 8, 2012 - The Huffington Post reports that a recent survey, spearheaded by Parenting.com and Women & Co., reveals that 90 percent of moms spend more on their kids' clothing than they do on their own. Of the survey's participants, over 50 percent assert that they will spend more money on clothing during back to school shopping than at any other point in the year. With so many consumers at local malls and department stores, the back to school shopping experience can quickly turn from one of excitement to one of intense stress. Moneyonthego.net, an online retailer that hosts a member-based shopping community, believes that online shopping can provide the same value to parents without causing the high degree of stress.
According to the article, families are expected to spend an average of $688.62 on back to school purchases for the 2012-2013 school year, per a survey released by the National Retail Federation. For families of four, a survey conducted by American Express estimates that parents will spend an average of $800.
Although the amount that families are expected to spend varies from one source to another, the bottom line is that back to school spending is a major event for parents and students. Clothing, notebooks, pens, backpacks, and other school supplies must be procured before families settle into their fall schedules.
Lines at popular retailers can, then, become quite long as parents rush out to purchase these items before school begins. This can cause major stress—on top of the stress already incurred by spending more money than normal. Moneyonthego.net believes that online retailers can provide the services parents need without the unnecessary stress factor.
Greg Biewlaski, spokesperson for Moneyonthego.net, comments: "Shopping online for back to school items is easier, it's faster, and it allows parents to compare prices and, ultimately, save money. The big back to school events that stores host are often available online, too—at a much higher level of convenience. For the parents who want to get all of their shopping done and get the highest value for their purchases, Moneyonthego.net has a great reward system and a huge selection of products."
