Yep, it's that time of year again: BACK TO SCHOOL! Parents everywhere are making their paper chain counting down to that first week in September. The only thing left to do is the back-to-school shopping.

We know it can be stressful -- so in an attempt to make it easier on you, we made a list of stores that will carry the supplies your child needs this year.
