Parents of rising high school seniors need to plan ahead to cut graduation expenses

Graduation is over and we are marching on. I have a Northwood cap and gown for sale, which was worn once. You will have to buy the tassel for next year from Herff Jones (or somewhere else, if you can find it cheaper, which I am sure you can.) Cap and gown are XLand will fit someone 6 foot or taller. Male or female (also have the white collar for girls that you attach) $10. This is planning ahead. However, I think what they charge for this stuff that you wear once and basically throw away or put in the attic is absurd.
