Take photos: Okay…this one’s more for the parents/grandparents/other extended family members, but the school year goes by fast. It’s never bad to take a moment to cherish the day, too.

Shocking! Parents weren’t good at sticking to a budget in the summer of 2019.

A new survey discovered that 52 percent of parents who had kids under 18-years-old spent more money than they wanted to.

The summer debt averaged out to $1,960. Most of the overspending came from taking a family vacation, education and tutoring options for the kids, summer camp and back to school shopping.

Did you spend a lot of money on the kids over the summer? What was the biggest expense?
