I feel like I’m a fairly responsible person when it comes to personal finance. Our bills are paid on time, our emergency fund is established and we don’t have debt except for our mortgage. However, there’s one area where I feel like a financial failure: saving for Haiden and Piper’s higher education.
It’s not that my husband and I have ignored saving money for them. We set aside amounts here and there. It’s just that I don’t know how to start a college savings plan that’s both effective and easy-to-manage. Between traditional savings accounts, 529 plans, savings bonds and everything else, I could really use some help!
