Strategies for Keeping Back to School Costs Low

As parents, there are few financial expenditures we look forward to with equal amounts of excitement and apprehension than the start of a new school year. Whether that means high tuition, or just getting the basics--books, binders, and clothes--the cost of making sure our kids are prepared for a year of academic rigor send shivers down our spine.

Shopping for a Used Car When You Have Bad Credit
