Wow, the checks have been flying around here!  Regular bills, property taxes due, then college tuition, room, board and car with insurance for one child.

Over $25,000 out of pocket in ONE MONTH!! 

DH and I will be so rich when these kids finally are on their own! 

How are you all doing with back to school and fall expenses?

Wow, that is A LOT per month.

I remember at 19 when I got my first car I was limited on what I could spend.  I was on the phone all morning with insurance agencies.  Now my father and I paid outright cash for my car so all I needed was liability which ran me about $20 a month and that was with 1 accident on my record.

I hope you can find her better coverage, or maybe go through it with her and have her do it.
