Believe me, there are more expensive options – Johns Hopkins is not far and the University of Maryland is 9 thousand for the year.
My kids are 6 and 7. They each have a college fund set up by their grandfather. One has about 14 thousand in it and the other has about 9 thousand. They have time for it to grow, but it is not going to be able to completely fund their college years unless we are super careful. Even then, I don’t know.
and it is 92 dollars a credit at the community college and about 3 thousand a semester at one of the local public universities, but we have several universities fairly close and we could pay much more than that. Luckily, it looks like my kids could get their 4 year degree by paying the community college tuition through partnerships with some local unviersities. I am not sure whether it will make sense for what they want to do, but I think that we will be doing the first two years at a community college.
two weeks at Macy’s down the road for the holidays. It’s only minimum wage, but the BEST part is they have a self-assign scheduling system ! They post the available shifts online, and you sign up for the ones you want to work, up to 40 hours/week.
So for me, that is IDEAL, since it means I can keep my homeschooling, tutoring, babysitting gigs going during the day…and I should never have a conflict.
It’s not going to be huge money, but every little bit helps.
