Shopping online not high among back-to-school shoppers

For back-to-school shopping this year, more parents are cutting back on non-school expenses so they can buy their kids clothes and school supplies, while spending less on computers and electronics.

That's one nugget of data from a new survey by Bing shopping, part of the new Microsoft search engine, that found that 85% of the people it surveyed are at least less likely to cut back on non-school-related purchases this year.

Forty-five percent said computers and electronics are the least important category they plan on buying from this year while shopping for school items.
