  •    This week, I wanted to touch base on — are you sitting down — back to school readiness. I really didn’t want to say it, but someone has to.

       As the tax-free holiday for school shopping is upon us, there are some things you can ponder before the big event.
       I highly recommend taking the pants out of the closet or drawer for your student. It never fails; I see kids in elementary school with pants a good four to six inches too short for them.
