Back to school is an exciting time, but it can also be taxing on the wallet if you get too carried away! Keep your shopping list short and hopefully stick to budget by following our back to school tech essentials list.
1. Microsoft Office – Home & Student

2. Back-up Drive
Everyone loses computer data at some point. If your hard drive were to fail, a software bug could delete important files, or the unthinkable happens and your computer gets stolen. If you’re not backing up your files, that data could be lost forever.
