There’s no doubt that this summer has been well…expensive!

Gas prices were over $5 for a pretty significant amount of the summer. Parents were expected to spend 8% more on back-to-school shopping this year. According to Fortune, parents were expected to spend $661 per child on back-to-school clothes and supplies. Thanks to record high inflation, we’re all spending more. But as prices go up, do you know what doesn’t? Many Boise residents’ paychecks! 

That’s why many of us have cut back on some “extras” that we enjoy doing during summer break. Maybe you didn’t take that annual road trip to McCall. Maybe the only time you took the kids to Roaring Springs was after you won free passes from the radio station. Maybe the money you wanted to spend on Backstreet Boys tickets for yourself went toward replacing the bike that your child outgrew since last summer.
