It’s almost that time again, parents and kids gearing up for the start of another school year.   

Of course, that means the time to begin planning your back-to-school shopping is right now.  

Kristin Myers, The Editor-in-Chief of the personal finance website ‘The Balance,’ says parents and students should prepare to spend more this year, up to 18% more in some cases, thanks to inflation. 

Marysol and Chris talked with Kristin about what is going to cost more and how parents and students can save.
