    College Funds

    Advertisements
    I am looking into college funds for my son due at the end of July. Any suggestions on good ones that others have or words of advice or cautions about ones I should stay away from?

    Any and all advice is welcomed. My goal is to have my brainstorming done by the time I deliver. Then have one picked and started by the time we do holiday pics, so when folks ask what I need for his bday and Christmas I can ask them to contribute to the fund rather than gifts or clothes and just let me handle that stuff. I know once he gets here life is going to speed up REAL fast and before I know it he is going to be 3mos and its October.

    Thanks again for all help!!!

    We have 529's for both our kids through Edward Jones. We like that the $$ can be used for undergrad and/or grad school... toward any school expenses. Also if one of our kids were not to use the money (doesn't go to college, gets scholarships, etc), we can use it for someone else... another kid or a grandchild, for instance.

    We set up accounts for both of our kids when they were born, I believe they are 529's. Not sure though since ex handles it all. Any money they get goes into those accounts.
