With many students going back to class in person this year, a new look is in order, but that doesn't mean you can't save big on clothing, especially considering back-to-school spending is up this year. The National Retail Federation says families with children in elementary through high school plan to spend an average of $848.90 on school items this year, which is $59 more than last year. College students and their families plan to spend an average of $1,200.32, an increase of $141 from last year.

Luckily, there are plenty of back-to-school clothing sales to help stretch your budget this year. Check out these current back to school coupon codes and back to school sales for children and college students alike, listed from A to Z -- literally, from Adidas to Zappos.
