It’s that time of year again. The summer is drawing to a close, you’ve finished all (or most) of your school shopping, and you’re sending your kids back to school in a few days or weeks (or maybe they’ve already headed back). In any case, it’s the end of summer, and it’s time to get back to the grind. But, getting going can be really tough. I’ll be honest the fact that it’s almost fall doesn’t make a huge impact on my routine (aside from the fact that it means my little bit will be here soon), but it does give me some perspective and drive toward wanting to get back into the routine to be more effective. If you’re feeling the same way or if you really are sending kids or yourself back to school and work, check out these tips for getting back into a good routine to be productive and maximize your time!
That’s right. I said it…Those three dreaded words, back-to-school. I understand it’s only mid-July, but I am also aware that second to Christmas, back-to-school is the next largest shopping season of the year. That being said, it can be just as easy to let your back-to-school budget get out of control as it can be to go overboard when shopping for Christmas. While we don’t have anyone heading back-to-school this year, I have years of back-to-school shopping under my belt as a child with my mom – she taught me the majority of my frugal shopping tactics. So, if you want to send your kids back-to-school in style (or at least with everything they need), check out these tips for how to save money on back-to-school shopping.
