The Best Way to Save For Your Child’s College Fund

Shares

I always chuckle a bit to myself when I hear someone speaking about how expensive babies are. They aren’t wrong. Babies do cost a lot of money, but it certainly doesn’t end there. In fact, it seems as if the older children get the more expensive they become! Now that Andrea and Andrew are both in school, it seems there is always something to budget for. Once we’ve purchased their school clothes and supplies… it’s already time to start thinking of the holidays. Then, when holiday ends, it seems the next is right around the corner!

As much as I struggle to plan, I often feel that I’m scrambling to keep up with the fast place flow that is life with kids. Despite how overwhelming it can seem, my husband and I know that planning for the holidays, activities, and school expenses doesn’t even begin to touch the things that matter most to us. While we want them to have fun and enjoy their lives now; we also want to prepare them for the future so that they won’t have to stress about some of the things that will later come up.

College is one of those things.

Planning for our kids’ education is one of the most important. That trumps most of the other things that we get caught up in during the day to day routine. Regardless, we’re determined to not let the expenses of a college education catch us off guard years from now. Instead, we’ve decided to start saving now, while they’re young, to best set them up for success in their future education!

    Thanks for sharing valuable information. Opening a savings account in a child’s name may seem like a really smart move, a way to give a little one a head start on a lifetime of thrift. However, it’s a decision that you might come to regret when college years approach. Reply

    Getting a plan started now is probably a good idea! College can be so expensive and it's good to have a plan multiple people can contribute to. Reply

    This is such great advice. It's hard to save money when parents are young and starting off. I love the fact that everyone can help with the kids college fund by donating through a 529 plan. Reply

    It is so important to start saving for your kids education as early as you can. I am so happy we started when our Son was born. He is starting College next year and he will not have to go into debt to go to school. Reply

    My husband has been saving for my kids with a 529 plan so I feel good that we will have most of it covered. It is nice to have someone to manage it if you are not comfortable. Reply

    I have to check this out immediately. I have three kids, and they're certainly not staying the same age. We need to start planning for this soon. Reply
