Budgeting for College

It’s been a busy few weeks in my world, between the school play, Thanksgiving, our office moving, and more fun stuff like that. So apologies that you haven’t heard more from me lately.

One topic of ongoing conversation at my household: What would it look like if one of my kids chose a school that costs $10,000 a year more than an alternative? Attached is a handy-dandy spreadsheet that will let your family make similar comparisons. The colored fields are where you input data; everything else should calculate. Make sure you do input some actual data since there are placeholder numbers in there.

And use each school’s net price calculator to get at least a semi-accurate cost estimate.
