Things to Know
A Little Knowledge is a Good Thing
School Shopping: Set a budget in advance. Share this with the family so you purchase only those items on the list and don't get "distracted" by the latest pair of power sneakers.
College: If you are being charged for insurance or some other health care fee, make sure that it doesn't duplicate your family coverage. If it does, get the charge waived.
Financial Aid: Find out what grade point average you must maintain to keep financial aid. And then earn those grades.
Textbooks: Access book vendors on the Internet or use a comparison shopping service, so you can price out books from many bookstores and find the best buy.
