None of the past 29 Mega Millions drawings have produced a jackpot winner, which means the drawing for Friday, July 29 is a whopping $1.1 billion! You read that right. The winning ticket will be worth more than half a billion dollars. (The cash option is $648.2 million, that's still not too shabby!)

Last year, the average American family was expected to spend over $498 on Back-to-School shopping...per child. Thanks to inflation and hiccups in the supply chain, you can almost guarantee that costs will be even higher in 2022.
