My HBD Has A Name Now

avatar

Its name is now "college books"

As a book loving mom, I feel its only natural that I pay for my children's college books.

According to google it costs about $1200 per year to pay for books. This means $4800 per kid.

If prices stay the same as they are now.

Now that HBD pays a 10% interest rate

I will be using it as the place to store my funds.

According to the investment calculator if I want to be ready to start paying for books in four years, I must add $75 per month to the account to reach past that goal, just in case book prices go up.

I also took into consideration that I will start paying for books in four years, and it will be just $600 at a time, which means some of the money will be able to stay in the account earning interest.

If, while kid #1 is eating away in the account $600 at a time, I keep adding $75 per month, then the account will stay healthy and strong for the two middle children.

Then sometime after they are done, I can just leave the account alone, and pay for the last ones books off the interest.

I always knew that I would figure out how to help my kids pay for college

But it feels damn good, to have a do-able, actionable plan, already in motion.

The Hive Network just became that much more magical to me.

Awesome! we don't even have to put fiat to get HBD, just keep blogging or do curation, we'll have enough to add and claim every 23 day (to add more to the savings).

You have 4kids?

Nice.... You just reminded me of Robert Kiyosaki telling his friend to take the money he was saving for his child's education in the bank and invest it instead.... This was a great move for that parent because he had returns on his money and interest that finance his children's education plus extra

Your kids are lucky to have you

What a strong woman are you,you don't even care for anyone's help, you are just trying as much as possible to raise your children. I remember you rejected an offer from government helping mamas that live alone in California. Well done my good friend

This is really fabulous calculation and retirement planning as well. I would certainly sell some of my tokens and invest in the HDB for future savings.

This is such a good idea! I think loading up the HBD savings is becoming a nice complement to having Hive Power!

I don’t have any kids yet but I’ll have to keep this in mind when they get here. Paying for books is such an annoying part of the education process… 😩
