One of the missions for the show is to introduce you to new technology. Every Tech Tuesday, my guest Pamela Muldoon talks about the technology that is all around us and, on the horizon, with a focus on the budding social media scene that is becoming increasingly important in marketing and making your business successful. The goal is to explain the lightning fast changes in real world technology in down-to-earth language that encourages us to embrace the mysterious technology landscape.

This week, Pam talked about back-to-school shopping and using online resources to save money.

According to The National Retail Federation, the average family will spend about $635 on necessities for grade-school children, and about $837 on college-bound students. That’s down from last year, but still a lot of money! She said that websites like ebates.com and extrabux.com take less than a minute to sign up on and can direct you to hundreds of online stores, as well as do all your couponing for you.

The website hukkster.com comparison shops. It compiles school supply prices by text or email at a variety of stores and also tracks sales.

She also mentioned that, like at Globe University, some students use e-books that can be as much as 40% cheaper than traditional books. If e-books are not an option, students can cut 50 percent off textbook bills by renting from their college store or online vendors such as Amazon.com or Chegg.com.
