PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - It’s back to school time!  And for college-bound kids, that means lots of shopping.

Many kids headed to college will be living on their own for the first time, and for them, back to school means furnishing their own place with all of the essentials.

“Oh, there’s so many on my list! toiletries, all kinds of body washes and shampoo!”

“I’m shopping for bedding, sheets, duvet covers!”

“space bags, bedlifters and dishtowels.”

“Towels, linens, everything!”

Of course, some of the things they buy are school supplies.

“And a laptop! That’s very important! Instead of going to the library every hour, have to print out something. Definitely need a printer but they make it easy nowadays with flash drives; that’s important too!”

And this mom tells me she’s been working hard to pay for her daughter’s back to school needs.
