MORNING. THE PART QUESTION IS HOW DO YOU KEEP EVERYTHING ON BUDGET RIGHT FINANCIAL ANALYST GOT BRADDOCK IS HERE WITH TIPS TO KEEP SCHOOL SHOPPING IN CHECK. GOOD MORNING TO YOU WANT TO COME OVER S HOW DO YOU WHAT ARE YOU WASTING MONEY ON TOO MUCH OF THE TIME, YOU KNOW, IT’S CHALLENGING. IT’S PROBABLY NOT A BIG SURPRISE THAT TODAY SHOPPERS ARE GOING TO SPEND NORTH OF $300 JUST FOR THE LATEST GADGETS THAT OUR STUDENTS NEED. YES, ABSOLUTELY ON TODAY. SO WHAT SHOPPERS CAN DO IS THEY CAN DO THEIR RESEARCH AHEAD OF TIME FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT THEIR STUDENT NEEDS SO THEY DON’T OVERSPEND SEE IF THE STORES OFFER SOME PAYMENT PLAN SO THEY CAN PAY OVERTIME. IT’S BEST TO PAY CASH, BUT IF YOU’RE GOING TO USE CREDIT CARDS, SEE IF YOU CAN PAY THAT CREDIT CARD OFF AT T THE END OF THE MONTH SO YOU DON’T END UP. MOORE THEY ARE SHOWING OUT A LOT OF MONEY RIGHT NOW. HOW DO YOU TURN THAT INTO A LESSON ABOUT SAVING AND SPENDING BECAUSE THAT’S IMPORTANT FOR KIDS TO HEAR AND SEE FOR SURE. IT’S NEVER TOO YOUNG TO START YOUR CHILDREN ARE NEVER TOO YOUNG TO START TALKING TO THEM ABOUT TAKING CHARGE OF FINANCES. SO IN ADDITION, THERE’S A LOT OF STUDENTS THAT WANT TO HAVE THE THE NEW FASHION THE THE HIGHER-PRICED ATTIRE SO GOOD OPPORTUNITY THERE. IS THAT HAVE THEM TAKE ON SOME EXTRA RESPONSIBILITIES SOME EXTRA CHORES AROUND THE HOUSE HAVE THEM ACTUALL TO EARN A WAGE ONCE THEY RUN THAT WAY. IF THEIR CHILD TO MAKE BETTER FINANCIAL DECISIONS WITH THEIR MONEY THAT WAY YOU CANNOT TEACH THEM TO EARLY ABOUT THAT AND YOU THINK IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO LOOK TO THE FUTURE WHEN YOU ARE DOING SCHOOL SUPPLY SHOPPING. SO EXPLAIN WHAT YOU MEAN BY THAT, RIGHT? SO A LOT OF TIMES PARENTS GET CAUGHT UP IN MAKING SURE THAT THEIR CHILDREN HAVE THE LATEST AND THE GREATEST AND THEY LOSE TRACK OF THEIR OWN FINANCIAL GOALS, AND THAT’S WHAT I LEFT. MY MESSAGE RIGHT NOW IS DON’T DO THAT PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN FINANCIAL GOALS PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN RETIREMENT. YOU CAN TAKE OUT A LOAN FOR COLLEGE, BUT YOU CAN’T FOR RETIREMENT. SO VER IMPORTANT EDUCATE YOURSELF. I’M REALLY BIG ON EDUCATION. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY SHOULD DO AND THEY’RE GIVEN SITUATION WHICH I THINK IS KEY. YEAH, WE WERE TALKING PEOPLE JUST DO NOT SAVE LIKE THEY SHOULD FOR RETIREMENT. IT’S UNFORTUNATE. BUT TODAY THE MOST FEARED MOST FOL ARE NOT SAVING FOLKS ABOUT ONE-THIRD OF FOLKS THAT ARE 55 TODAY HAVE LESS THAN $25,000 SAVED SO STICK TO A BUDGET CREATE A SPENDING PLAN AT OUR WEBSITE ON THE LANDING PAGE, WHICH IS FOUND. IT’S GOT BRADDOCK FINANCIAL.COM. THERE’S A BUDGET WORKSHEET THAT I KNOW WILL HELP BECAUSE IT’S HELPED OUR CLIENTS. THANK YOU SO MUCH. ALL RIGHT, SO W
