Money-Hacks May Blog Carnival

Welcome to the May 28, 2010 edition of kids and money.

Sam presents New !! How to Pay for College posted at Surfer Sam and Friends, saying, "Thanks for including my article. Here's an excerpt… How to Pay for College Smart Ways to Pay for Your College Did you know that the average cost for tuition and room and board is $32,000 at a private college? Some Ivy League schools charge more than $40,000 each year. At a public college the annual cost is over $13,000. Your college costs include the tuition, fees for labs, athletics and activities, and room and board on campus. You'll also pay for textbooks and supplies, computers, software and a printer, phone, transportation, personal expenses like laundry, clothes, and haircuts. Some of you will pay for sorority or fraternity fees or apartment rental if you live off-campus. Suddenly, your college costs seem astronomical. However, more financial aid is available now to help you pay for college, so few families have to pay the whole amount out of pocket. In the long run, a college education pays for itself. Not only does college open up better career opportunities, and reduce unemployment. There are also indirect benefits of college that continue throughout your life. Studies show that college has a positive influence on health, community participation and sense of satisfaction. A college education is a wise investment. Grab Financial Aid to Pay for College Seventy percent of all college students receive some financial aid. Financial aid comes from many sources to help you pay for college. There are grants and scholarships which give you college money clear and free, that never has to be repaid. There are work-study programs at each college, with good pay with part of your earnings paid for by the federal government. The money you earn on a work-study program is entirely yours, and is never repaid. Student loans are money you borrow to pay for college and must repay after graduation."

Gregory E. Rouse presents Frugal Business posted at Frugal-Living-Skills Blog, saying, "First, we don’t know how to do math today… People will often spend money to save money (which is a paradox) or spend money to make money. We seem to forget that every penny spent has to be earned back."

Master Your Card presents Soft Pull vs. Hard Pull: Which is What and Who’s Responsible? | Master Your Card posted at Master Your Card, saying, "The precise formula that credit reporting agencies use to determine your credit score is as elusive as Google’s PageRank algorithm. But there are some things we consumers understand well about the factors that go into your credit rating. One such item that has a weighty presence on your credit report is a credit inquiry – that is, when someone (including you) checks out your credit history for whatever purpose. Conventional wisdom dictates that having many credit checks on your credit report is bad, while having fewer is better. But that’s not necessarily true."

Carlos Sera presents An Unexpected Tale – Teach Your Children Well posted at Financial Tales, saying, "As a young boy I was blessed to know and learn from my Uncle Segundo or Tio Segundo as I knew him. He like so many other relatives came to live with my family for a short time as they fled their beloved Cuba to make a new home in the welcoming arms of the United States. Tio Segundo was like many Cuban exiles. He came to this country in his late 40’s by himself, penniless and left behind everything that he knew and cherished. In Cuba he was an intellectual, a philosopher, a consultant to Presidents, a lawyer and the Mayor of Holgin, the second largest city in Cuba. This tale teaches us that the unexpected happens and that you must prepare."

It would have been nice to be able to go inside and get out of the heat. But then again, our house is too small to contain more than 6-8 people (somewhat comfortably), so our giant gathering would have had to take turns. I really like the idea of the Party Palooza type places.
