It's that time of year... back to school.
As thousands of area kids get ready to head back, parents must tackle the school supply shopping lists.
Lists vary with items from backpacks to binder and pencils to push-pins.
Some store shelves sit bare after people grabbed all the items off them.
No matter what necessities top your list, it's key to have a school supply shopping strategy.
"I think we like to get it all done in one big shot if we can," says Ginger Diagostine who shopped with her children Sunday. "We like to come to a place where they have everything they need and just pick it up and get it over with."
Whether your have your sharpened pencils or not, when the wheels on the bus start rolling, it's time to get in gear for school.
