Summer is almost over and children and parents are getting excited about going back to school. Before the new school year begins, parents need to be sure that they have a plan for taking care of all of the impending back to school shopping and scheduling. It is a good idea to first know the direction in which you are going. Start with the child’s school supplies. First, get a copy of the grade level school supply list. If one has not been mailed or emailed to you, check the schools data online. Once obtained, check around the house to see if there may be items there that can be used. The school supplies list varies very little from year to year, so last years list will give you a head start. If you are concerned that the expenses may not fit into your budget, the firm of Freedom Financial Asset Management will help you with a savings plan that will allow you to have all monies for back to school accessible and available.
Clothes shopping is next on the list. Whether your child will need uniforms or casual dress, you want them to be trendy. A good time to shop for back to school clothes is in the month of October when they are discounted more. Buy a little to get them started, but save the majority of clothes shopping until then. Freedom Financial Asset Management can help with scheduling expenditures to make it easier on the budget. Kevin Gallegos, Vice President of Freedom Financial Asset Management in Phoenix suggests that you always list the items that you need to purchase, and take it with you when you shop. It is also recommended that school lunches, homework time, extra curricular activities, and bedtime should be scheduled and posted for the entire family to see.
