Back to school planning

It is time to start thinking about back to school planning for extra-curriculur expenditures that will inevitably hit you in only a few short weeks.

This week, Dave and Reb draw your attention to the needs of this time of year with back-to-school shopping, sports activities and other school needs. Dave suggests taking a step back this month, and taking a broader look at your extra expenses, not just for this fall but for the whole year.

“September can be a stressful time of year for some families,” Dave says. “Even though we know the expenses are coming we haven’t made a plan for them, or even looked at whether or not we want to continue doing what we have done in the past.”

To help on this journey, Dave and Reb talk about taking a “bird’s-eye view” of each month of the year, and what “extra” expenses are involved in each month. This will help in the overall understanding of where money is going and what is really important to you as a family.

To help you tackle this task, and understand the “hows” and “whys” behind it, take a listen to the show and get started!
