The recent sales trends especially in the discount children clothes department are indicative of today's economy

The recent gains in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) demonstrate the importance of being prudent with the family budget. One way of doing this is to shop for discount children clothes with brand names at The Uber Shop's online store.

As its name suggests, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) is one of the most commonly used indicators of inflation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) constructs the CPI by comparing the prices of a particular set of goods and services to the prices of the same set of goods and services during some giving period of time.

The CPI increased by 0.8% in July to yield an unadjusted inflationary rate of 5.6% between this past July and July of 2007. This represents the largest jump in inflation since the rise in the inflationary rate between January of 1990 and January of 1991.

Apparel is one of the eight primary groups in which the products and services, used to calculate the CPI, are placed. Apparel had the smallest yearly inflationary rate jump at 0.8%. This was much smaller than the percentage increases in the remaining seven primary groups at which the most dramatic rise was within the transportation group at 13.4%.

The 5.6% rise in the CPI corresponds with a desire by families to save wherever they can. This is supported by a recent survey, by Deloitte Consulting, which found that 71% of consumers will not spend as much on back-to-school supplies while 48% of consumers plan to lower their back-to-school budget by $100 or more.

The Uber Shop's online store has seen sales of quality, brand name, discount children clothes reflective of families looking for back-to-school clothes at discount prices to ease the family budget.
