The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: School Days Edition

With the latter days of August comes the start of another school year.

My children have greeted the change with enthusiasm so far. They all have friends that they’re anxious to see and their summer reading programs have kept their reading skills up so they’re not intimidated to return.

For me, it gives me a block of time that’s very quiet at home but adds to my responsibilities outside of that block of time. I can handle both “summer” and “school year” mode quite well when they get going, but the transition is always a bit wonky.

Anyway, here are a few of the best personal finance articles I’ve found on blogs in the last week or so.
