Note: BCR, I’m having trouble reaching you through the email address you left. Could you email me through this link to get in touch? Thanks – Julie

First of all, thanks to everyone who took the time to comment on the giveaway post. The comments on this one were really insightful as to how ordinary people are dealing with the costs of higher education. They’re worth a read if you haven’t had a chance to do that yet.

Now, Congratulations to BCR for winning the $50 prepaid Mastercard from H&R Block by leaving lucky comment #1.

Congrats, BCR! Several things stood out to me about your comment:

  1. Even though your kids had some debt when they graduated, it was worth the effort to keep it at a minimum. Student loan debt is often treated as an all or nothing proposition, including here at The Family CEO. I love your real world example.
  2. It was a family effort. I would love to know more about that!
  3. Your family’s attitude toward student loan debt affected your kids’ life after college.

Good stuff! Thank you for sharing.

  • 10 Frugal Tips You Haven’t Already Heard. Since I do a lot of reading about personal finance, I feel like I’ve read the same things over and over and over. And I have. That’s why I liked this list from Wisebread.

Have a great weekend!
