I pay tuition and public transportation for school. I don't charge room and board.

And they still save money!

Wow, that's good to hear. That seems like a lot to pay for, but I bet they learned a lot of self control with their spending because of it. I'm not sure my kids could pay for all of that with part-time minimum wage jobs, but I do plan on adding more expenses with time. Baby steps. 😌
