Paid Summer Tuition in Full

June 5th, 2017 at 03:59 pm

I paid my daughter's summer tuition bill in full this evening. A whopping $1,855.18 in cash out of our checking account. This money was saved since March of this year.

I've also paid for the books she needs. Two were purchased used for a combined total of $14.23. I'm nearly positive she will not want to keep them after the course is over, so they will get resold. The third book we rented for $17.76 on Amazon. I looked everywhere to buy or rent cheaper. The cheapest to buy was $24.99 for an eBook. When you rent a book, it is nearly always free to ship back, at least that is our experience with Amazon.

Feels fantastic to still be student loan debt free!

    CCF: Not sure if you saw this last month, but it shows how good you are to help your daughter. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/20/opinion/sunday/student-debts-economy-loans.html?_r=0

    Yes, that must feel good!

    As someone who had no family financial help, I think it's incredibly generous of you to help your daughter and I hope she realizes how truly blessed she is. While I did manage to escape a $200000 education with less than $50k student loans, it's still a hefty debt and will take a long time to pay off. My hope is to never pass that on to my kids (if we're lucky enough to have them).
