Back-to-school spending expected to reach record highs

Consumer spending is expected to reach nearly $26.2 billion, or $696.70 per household, on K-12 back-to-school items in 2019. The total household spend is up from 2018’s reported $684.70, while spending a year ago was higher — $27.5 billion total — due to more families with children in grades K-12, according to National Retail Federation’s 2019 survey.
