Easy? Well, if it’s easy, then how can it be heroic? I’ll get to that…

In your life, you probably have someone that you consider a hero. It could be a teacher, a coach, husband, wife, sibling, child or friend. Your relationship to your hero doesn’t determine whether he or she IS a hero, it’s their actions and character that matter.

What Makes a Hero?

A hero is defined as someone admired for achievements and noble qualities, or one who shows great courage. For me, it’s someone that is all of that, but has also made a difference for me in my life. That’s the difference between a hero and MY hero.

My hero doesn’t have to run into burning buildings or take a bullet to be worthy of the title, but selfless acts on a smaller scale count too.

Be A College Savings Hero

Ok, how heroic can saving for college be? Well, according to www.collegedata.com, the most recent cost data on in-state public colleges is $25,290 per year for tuition, fees, book, and room & board. That’s over $100K for four years of college! I’d say that’s pretty darn heroic numbers.

Didn’t the title of this blog say something about “easy”? Even though college costs are high and could even seem unattainable, you CAN be a college savings hero for your son or daughter. It’s all about getting started now and being a consistent saver.

    1. I can’t imagine paying for my own college while subsequently trying to save for my own children.

  1. If only my mom saw this post 20 years ago… 5 years post-graduation, and I still have thousands to pay off. Shew. Maybe I’ll get this started before I pop out my kids!

    1. The only way I was able to pay off a big chunk was because I was teaching at a Title 1 school in an area of high need (Chemistry). That, combined with following Dave Ramsey’s approach to budgeting and the debt snowball.

      There wasn’t a college fund for me, so I get it!

  2. My parents took my undergrad bill and I footed all my fees and costs in grad school. At that point, the only thing I didn’t pay for was my car insurance. Right after I moved out, it was all on me!
