How Much Does it Cost to Be... a Fifth Grader
3. Personal Care
Trips to the pharmacy and the hairstylist for your ten-year-old can really add up. Consider that a boy's cut is about $15. Six times a year, that's $90. Like with almost everything, the cost is higher for girls. Toothpaste, shampoo, and other essentials to keep them from being ostracized from society, about $4 a month. Total: $138 a year.
