Are you working on your back to school budget?  
The average family will spend about $634 this year, on clothing, shoes, supplies and electronics, according to the national retail federation. That's down nearly $55 from last year.
A number of parents report they'll be squeezing a few more inches out of last year's clothes and 80-percent say they'll adjust their shopping due to the economy.  
Parents also say they have leftover or still usable school supplies from last year.
