    Saving that in a PRE-PAID COLLEGE FUND is one of the best ideas. I know Florida and Illinois both are States with a Pre-Paid program. You can ALWAYS tell your child daily that he's got to study because his COLLEGE is paid for, so he has no excuse to not put out effort.
I wish I'd bought each one of my children a HOUSE. I know a woman who bought the house next door to her place and they rented it until the mortgage was paid off & then her son got married and lived there. She said when the house came up for sale, the nephew of the man who owned it had gotten it in his Uncle's will and he lived out of State. He took a small down payment and then she finally after a couple of years saved enough to pay him and get a mortgage for the rest and she kept it rented. She said she LIKED knowing WHO it would be rented to was the real reason she'd bought it, as once before she'd had HORRIBLE neighbors to deal with.
