What are ways to save money for college at 14?
I’m graduating from 8th grade this June and I really want to go to a UC college like UCLA or UC Irvine but it is very expensive! I checked out the website and it was $25,000 per year for undergraduates. What are some ways that I can save money this early?
SAVE everything, birthday money, graduation money, christmas money, start a college savings plan for yourself (your parents can help you choose the correct one) and the companies will let you print out deposit slips to hand out to relatives. A great way to “hint” to them what you want for Christmas for the next 4 years.
You are old enough to start working now, babysit, mow lawns, lemon aide stand, bake sale, clean houses, rake leaves. I used to wash lunch trays in my middle school cafeteria for 45 min a day and got free lunches and breakfasts plus five dollars a week so I got to keep the money my parents gave me for lunch money….. the possibilities are ENDLESS!!!
