I just spent almost as much on textbooks as I did on tuition. Except that the textbooks are not covered by scholarship like the tuition is. I cannot extol the virtues of the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts enough - it is an incredible program that was (*gasp*) EASY to use!
Now I need to start looking for scholarships and grants to cover things other than tuition...like textbooks, lab fees, etc. Thankfully I can write off the textbook costs at the end of the year but OUCH...that's going to put a dent in our budget for the month!
Classes start not this week but next week. I'm nowhere near ready, mentally.
Story of my life these days.
