Brooklyn, NY, August 03, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Youlayaway, a New York City based online layaway shopping comparison startup has just released its annual "Back to School Layaway Shopping Guide" in which it provides parents with tips on making the most of the upcoming back to school shopping season.
Layaway is being recommended for parents who are on a budget and are not able to pay for their kid's school supplies in full. Many stores give these parents the ability to pay for their purchases in installments, and finalize the layaway right before the start of the school year.
The annual report breaks down the best values and highest recommended items based on the grade the child is attending.
For kids heading back to Elementary through Junior High (grades K-8), some top items are new backpacks, ball point pens, and glue sticks. For the slightly more grown up kids heading into High School, the Texas Instruments TI-83 still reigns supreme, while portable MP3 players are a close second.
The shopping guide rounds off the list with a checklist for the young adults heading into college with recommendations to buy microwaves, toaster ovens, laptops, and compact refrigerators.
