How much money is needed for college students? For Food, groceries, staples, books, supplies and social?
I am at a loss as to how much money to give our daughter for food and groceries and household incidentals, who is moving off campus for the first time this year. I want to be supportive and give her enough to live on reasonably, and not have to struggle and stress out about her monthly budget, but don't want her living "high on the hog" and wasting our hard earned money!
