When my kids were still in their elementary grade, I sent them to a private school. My reason is that, I want them to have a good foundation while they were still young. We are not that rich, but me and my husband agreed that we have to sacrifice for the sake of the education of our growing kids. Because of this, I was encouraged to buy a family encyclopedia for their future reference. I was not mistaken because it helps them a lot even when they were already in college. We bought these on credit at P16,000.00 in 1998. I took a picture of these books to remind me always that it is a good investment for our family.
