August is right around the corner, so don’t forget to include this vital item in your budget!
I thought it was going to be start saving up for Christmas…
Wise advice. I look for deals through out the year to avoid paying anywhere near $100, plus we reuse items still in good condition (eg. Lunch boxes, backpacks, etc.) until a great sale comes along. 😉
There are even more dollars to spend for school at this time of year: school fees (yes, in the public schools!). Kids in high school have fees for foreign language study, art, music, marching band, sports, etc. These can be $500+.
