Does Back-to-School Shopping Stress You Out?

According to a new survey, 91% of parents say the whole back-to-school shopping thing stresses them out.  The number one reason is money.  Having to drag your kid around a store is the second most stressful part of it.  Here are four more random stats from the survey . . .
