AMARILLO -- If you're still in need of stocking up on school supplies here are some ways to save.

Back to school season is the second most expensive retail season.

Consumer Credit Counseling Service says before you head for the shopping cart, take inventory. 

Check for supplies you already have on hand. 

They say create a budget and only buy the necessities. 

It's also a good idea to check online and compare prices before you buy items.
