We just started house hunting in the San Francisco/ Bay area and realised we are short by at least $30K for the down payment for the price range we are looking at.

Post taxes/rent, we make about $15K per month. What are some suggestions to make short term/ long term lifestyle changes that could allow us to save significantly?

Does anyone else think that the way we teach English and ELA doesn’t meet the current needs of students. Is it still beneficial having so many required novels and longer texts for them to read each year? The traditional texts seem to fit better into a history or humanities class, or are chosen for SEL and reasons other than ELA objectives. By the time they reach my class, most hate reading. They also still struggle with simple writing assignments, reflections. and basic grammar/punctuation.
