As a parent, I know that back-to-school time signals two things: an empty house during the day and an empty wallet after buying school supplies. Factor in a college student in the household and the expenses climb even more. The Today Show recently featured some back-to-school savings, which you can catch in the video below. One of my own recommended tips: get those pencils, pens and notebooks at the dollar store. Also, office supply stores usually have some great discounts on those items as well. If you have a college student and they are going to school close to home, they may want to consider living with mom and dad. It's not as cool as living on campus, but it will save a ton of cash.
