Doyle Williams: Country Financial financial expert offers tips for back-to-school budgeting

Doyle Williams helps make sense of back-to-school budgeting and saving

Doyle Williams, EVP at Country Financial understands that this time of year can be extremely tricky when it comes to sticking to a budget.  With the cost of school supplies increasing by as much as 88 percent, it is easy to accidentally overspend.

Most kids want new items to celebrate the new year, but it can take a huge bite out of a family budget.

A sobering statistic is that a family of five living at the poverty level guideline of $28,410 would spend as much as 10 percent of their income sending three children to school.

Older kids are faced with additional financial burdens.  Student loans and soaring college fees. According to a recent study from the Country Financial Security Index, more than 35 percent of millennials are still living at home and rely on their parents for additional financial assistance.
