Advent Financial Calendar: Box 9

Advent Financial Calendar Box Day 9

Today’s box contains a scroll of some sort, you unravel it and see that it is a Diploma with your child’s name on it.

Time to start thinking about your child’s higher education now, when the task is not as daunting. If you haven’t started an RESP no time like the present, and best done before the end of the year, to maximize your grant possibilities. Talk to your bank or financial planner about what needs to be set up, but Education is the best gift you can give your child, and making sure they can go to University (if they wish), is something to start thinking about right now.

Read my postings about the high cost of University Education if you think this won’t be a big expense.

I must admit this is a selfish gift for me.
