Back to $chool With Eugenious

Ah, the leaves are turning colors some places in the world. Some kids are already back to school, some still scheduled to go. There’s a hustle, bustle and commercial rush to get everyone from kindergarten to college back to school. Rosy, warm, fuzzy and full of the fun that comes from remembering how cool it all was. Shopping for supplies and stuff. Yup. All fun and games. Right up until the bill comes.
And oh, what a back-to-school bill it is. Minus or plus a few dollars, it’s about $24.9 billion of a back-to-school supply, if anyone’s asking.
Which we are.
