Our country prides itself on encouraging its citizens to better themselves through education. (P) While its priority has been high school graduation, many jobs now require college degrees, making higher education more important than ever.

You only have so much time in a day and when you are a mother attending college and working there are sacrifices you are going to have to make to be more efficient; such as your friends, money, and your youth.

Saving money is an essential part of being able to balance out my bills, pay for all my books for college, and taking care of my children’s needs.
