Saving Money for JD's College Fund

A friend a church told me about how I can begin saving money for JD's college fund! I must be honest, I'm a bit mad at myself for not doing this earlier, like 2 years ago! :o)

Upromise – The easy way to start saving for college! See, I didn't join at first because I thought you had to have a credit card, see we don't have those! But you can use your debit card. I have that. And you can also register your grocery cards from like Ingles, Kroger, Publix and CVS. I was like, WOW! So, I signed up last night and spent about an hour checking out all of the stores that are affiliated with UPromise!

Ebay, CVS, Wal-Mart, Gap, Old Navy ... and soooooooo much more. I got all excited once I realized how many stores I shop at will give me back up to 25% of the total bill. Then I got even more excited because Christmas is just 5 1/2 months away. All of the money I spend on Christmas ... shoot, I can save all kinds of money for JD's college fund.

Join Upromise for free and let hundreds of America’s leading companies help you save for college!

Hey Kaprice,
You missed a great 529 savings resource. It’s Freshman Fund. Freshman Fund is like a registry for college savings. Parents go to the site, attach their 529, create a public profile and email friends and family a link where they can contribute directly into the child’s 529 account in lieu of or in addition to the usual birthday/holiday gifts. Great for parents and great for gift givers and it’s environmentally friendly gifting.

DISCLOSURE: I’m the founder of Freshman Fund. I was at my niece’s birthday party watching her tear through a pile of gifts taller than she was. At the end of the mele my gift was tossed aside into a pile of other forgotten gifts. I spent a-lot of time and money selecting her gift and I though it was a waste. I told her parents that from now on I was just going to contribute to her college savings. I asked them what website to go to in order to that and none existed. So I started Freshman Fund.

My dad once told me my husband and I wouldn't have any money until the kids were grown and out of the house. My youngest son is 3.
Looks like we got a ways to go!
I feel ya'!

We do have a long ways to go ...
