Summer is viewed and often experienced as a carefree time of year. But, summer is often a costly time of year for many families with two working parents.
Aside from camps, vacations, and other forms of entertainment for kids this time of year, getting ready to go back to school can be a expensive adventure. For families facing economic struggles, the simple need to restock school supplies — something many of us might just take for granted — can be a burden. This is especially true if more than one child is involved. The expenses go up as children get older.
