From school supplies to school uniforms, heading back to class can quickly become expensive.  In fact, according to the National Retail Federation, parents will spend an average of $603.63 ($220.60 on school clothes alone) this year just to prepare their kids for the new school years.  

Families ill prepared financially for back-to-school could easily find themselves in the red.  Throughout the month of August, Your Money, Your Matters will offer listeners tips on how to spend less and still get everything on their back-to-school shopping list, as well as share strategies on how NOT to blow the family budget during the back-to-school season. 

Your Money. Your Matters is a weekly show broadcasting every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon Central Time. The program features radio personalities Rick Grady and Linda Webb-Manon, Texas Credit Union League; Todd Mark, Consumer Credit Counseling Services, and Courtney Nickles, Texas Credit Union Foundation. Each month, the four discuss financial issues of most importance to consumers.  Tune in; share your thoughts; or gain helpful advice.
