THE back-to-school period can be a hectic time for many Tasmanian parents.

But a growing number of time-poor mums and dads are ditching traditional shopping trips and instead turning to the internet to make life easier, placing online orders for everything from textbooks to lunchboxes.

Among those who have embraced technology this year are Richard and Adelaide Reisz, from South Hobart, who recently ordered text books and stationery from the Birchalls website for their son Oscar, 9.

With a few clicks of the mouse they were able to view an official list of items Oscar needed for his grade four class and select the products they wanted.

Within a week the items arrived on their doorstep, saving a trip to the shops.

"We order everything else online these days, so why shouldn't we also buy school books?" said Mr Reisz, who was thrilled to buy online while also supporting a locally owned business.

"It was brilliantly easy," Mrs Reisz added.

Many Tasmanian parents have been raving on social networking sites about the time and money they saved by buying stationery, art supplies, shoes and other back-to-school staples from various websites.

Birchalls Hobart manager Donna Walker said this was the second year Birchalls had offered an online back-to-school service and demand was steadily growing.

"A substantial amount of parents are ordering online," she said.

Miss Walker said it provided greater convenience for parents, especially those who worked full time and didn't have time to visit traditional.

She said online shopping had been popular with families of four or five children, who considered the $10 postage charge a worthwhile investment for the time and effort they saved.
