It may only be July, but back to school shopping has already started. If you start right now, you may even find some of the best deals on tech items this year.
A survey finds more than half of families will buy electronics during their back to school shopping, but overall, back to school spending is expected to drop compared to last year.
Stores may also drop prices to try and draw you in.
"Many retailers will actually offer great promotions on tables this year, and for parents that are looking for a good deal, this is a great time to invest in those types of devices, maybe along the lines we see during the Christmas season," says Kathy Grannis of the National Retail Federation.
Most shoppers will hit the discount stores this year for back to school shopping, whereas nearly 40% will shop online.
