Financial Fitness: budgeting for back-to-school supplies

School supply lists have changed over time.

GREEN BAY - We still have one month of summer left, but now is the time to start thinking about those back-to-school supplies.  Budgeting expert Joni Kearn of Freedom Financial says the average American household will spend about $800 on clothes, shoes, school supplies and electronics.  Plus, she says, you need to factor in such things as sports and music fees. Kearn joined us on Good Day Wisconsin to talk about ways to save for the back-to-school shopping season.
