We purchased 100 dollar series e bonds from 1982 to 1988 for our daughter and 100 for our son from 1984 to 1990. bonds are in their names. Daughter will be 17 in november. We have been thinking about redeeming them before they are counted against her for school. She is a junior in HS. Is it too late to reinvest in better return? or should we simply join procrastinators anonymous. Our household income is about 90,000/yr but payments are tough. PS: We bought 1 bond per month for 6 years for each. Savings bond Wizard says hers are worth aobut $8100.

Would certainly appreciate any advice.
