Kids with backpacks

Has your family settled into the back to school groove, yet? 

It’s a rhythm that’s different for everyone:  some children started school for the first time, others are making new friends in new classrooms in new cities, even parents are figuring out a new routine with drop offs and pick ups for their household.

Whatever your family’s scenario may be, here are some tips to help parents and kids stay organized this year.

I can definitely say I’m breathing a big sigh of relief knowing that back to school week is finally in the books and we have started to feel some sort of a routine kicking in.

Although I’ll admit it was relatively pain free for our little guy who started his new adventure in JK.

Like it or not, the first few leaves are turning yellow and the sun is setting earlier each night, which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school.

There’s a lot of advice out there for parents of school-aged kids as fall approaches, but easing anxieties and smoothing the transition can be as simple as these fun-filled strategies:

Now that we can finally say good-bye and good riddance to winter it’s time to get our households in order.Springtime always means spring cleaning in our home but it shouldn’t stop short at just your cupboards and closets.As parents, we should also take a good inventory of what’s been happening with our finances over the fall and winter months and get back on track.

Reporters have often asked us, if someone is only able to focus on eliminating three bad spending habits, which would you say are most important and why?

Resolutions are a funny thing - either you’re keen about making them or you only start thinking of them when someone asks you about yours – usually just about 20 minutes before the clock strikes midnight to usher in the New Year. 

Since CST is in the business of helping parents we decided to ask the parents who work here about their New Year’s resolutions when it comes to household finances in the hopes of helping you out with yours (in case someone asks).
