Back-to-school is finally in full swing and parents everywhere can finally relax and concentrate on getting the household and family activities organized. Part of keeping an organized family is ensuring that the budget stays on track as well.
According to the National Retail Federation, families will have spent an average of $699.28 on back-to-school necessities. The days when all students needed were a pack of pencils, a few spiral notebooks and a cool backpack are long gone and with that is the light spending budget. Now we all tend to rely on the latest technology to keep inline with our school and home life demands. The students of 2014 require the use of technology and online services to research and complete the abundance of required assignments.
Thank goodness that Microsoft has come to the rescue! I absolutely love having Office 365 Home available to me at all times. Not only can I use it to get the most out of my scheduled blogging time but it is also very useful for my two daughters who are attending college. Both are able to use this software to assist them in completing their school assignments. Visit the Microsoft Blog for a few tips to help any family get the most out of technology and education this school year.
