Congratulations graduate! You’ve just graduated college, which is a huge step for any young adult, and often a challenging one. You are finally on your way to becoming the responsible man or woman you want to be. This can seem intimidating at first – stepping into the real world is a big deal. Most graduates have student loans to pay off in addition to supporting themselves as well as investing into your future.
There is nothing cheap about a higher education. College life is very expensive when you add the cost of tuition, books, housing and other necessities together. On top of having to take out students loans, some parents are forced to apply for private and/or parents loans. Jason is in his third year of college and I want him to focus on studying. We are always exploring new ways help him save money without over working himself.
Back to school shopping is a rite of passage for many families but it’s also a stressful time for many parents. If you have multiple kids to shop for, it can be even more chaotic. This is why it can help to learn some little tricks other parents are using to save time, money and sanity.
A huge thank you to Domino’s for sponsoring today’s story and allowing me to share with you how we are racking up the points and earning free pizza with their Piece of the Pie Rewards program.
As a family we usually order pizza about once a week – the girls love it just as much as their Papa, and we totally have a like father like daughter thing going on here. Having a party? Order Pizza. Having a get together? Order Pizza. Don’t feel like cooking? Order Pizza.
When J left for his first year of college last year I hadn’t planned on seeing him until Thanksgiving of that year. Except he got a bit homesick and came for a quick visit in September, and then again to celebrate A’s 1st birthday in October. Each time we flew him home, even if it was for just for quick weekend visit. Not exactly what we thought when trying to figure out how to bring the comforts of home to college for him.
