One of my major concerns before my (1 yo) son was born was that I desperately want him to have a college fund, so that he doesn't have to worry about going to school, ever. DH joined the military just because he couldn't afford to go to college and it drastically changed his life. BUT, I have yet to start anything b/c I'm SO confused by all the options out there, and no one I know has much insight. Texas already has two 529 options, but now they've started a prepaid tuition plan. Enrollment for this year ends Feb. 28th. Can any of you who know about this stuff check this out: https://www.texastuitionp...ation_07-09-08-124730.xml and let me know what you think?? I guess it would just be a less-risky option, right? Because there's no investment involved, you're just pre-paying the tuition. Is that a good or bad thing? I know the economy is horrible right now, but my son doesn't graduate for another 17 or so years. Still, I'm leery of portfolios and the such, just b/c I'm so clueless. Anyway. What are you all doing?? And someone tell me what I should do!! haha Our income is stable for now, we're working on paying off our debt, and I would really like to be able to get something started while my son is still young. Thanks for your help!!
