Hitting the Aisles for Back to School Supplies

It's that time of the year again. The time of year many kids dread, and many parents look forward to. With school less than two weeks away, it's time to go shopping for supplies.

Armed with their lists, moms like Jennifer Gary are ready to shop. "I've got three little boys and have a lot of things to get today," says Gary. And with that said, the race is on up and down the aisles of Target. From scissors and crayons to protractors and highlighters, you might need two carts this time of year.

As if shopping for school supplies isn't enough of a headache, the huge selection of lunch pales seems to get bigger year after year. From Star Wars to Scooby Doo to Bob the Builder and Spiderman, check out what they're putting in lunch boxes these days -- a special device to hold Pringles!

"Well, I remember picking out my supplies, and it was a lot of fun just getting all your stuff," says Sharon Baker. Spoken like a true adult. Most kids, on the other hand, have an entirely different perspective about back to school shopping. "I don't know if there's anything special about it. I don't think so," says one second grader.
