Charlotte (WBTV) There was an audible groan at my house when the first 'back-to-school' ad aired. I was the one grimacing! If you're like me you're not ready. And being organized is the first step to shopping! This year consider your smart phone as 'classroom central'. From deals on shoes, to tallying up how much you've spent so far, mobile phone apps can make the pressure of getting it all done, melt away!
I met Shea Gipson at Marshalls shopping with her nine year old Amira Amryin. Amira loves clothing so much she started a blog called "Tween Fashionista". On the web site she talks about clothing trends for young girls. "I think if you're going to be a fashion designer you have to have a passion early on, and I do," Amira told me.
She gets her keen sense of fashion from her mom who owns the beauty trend business, Champaign Taste. "I depend on my cell phone, it's my lifeline to clients," said Shea. She uses it to keep in touch with people 24 hours a day. But she also uses her smart phone to save! She's become a huge fan of mobile apps.
