Do you find yourself digging around your house for lunch money, minutes before the bus arrives? Is it always a struggle to find the right amount of cash for each child, on the days they buy lunch at school?
Yes, the start of the school year is right around the proverbial corner and something we will all see coming around the street corner is that bright, yellow school bus.
Ready, set…shop! It's that time of the year when parents begin to purchase school supplies for their kids.
