529 College Savings Plan?

Hello!!! I am wondering how I start to set up a 529 college savings plan for my son. Did anyone use anyone that was really helpful? I am not a numbers person at all so I look at all that paper work and go crazy! Since I work part-time I was going to try to get this done on my days off without having to get my hubby, who works full-time, to help me! Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

Care Package for a Boy in College

I am trying to think of things to send my stepson. It's his 1st year in school. 1st time away from home. What can I send him that will be an encouragement. I thought about having his little brother and sister draw pictures for him and sending a few hard copy pictures that he can hang on his bulletin board of the family. Maybe some homemade cookies or brownies. I'll throw in some gum and starburst. What else can I put in there that will be easy to ship? DId anyone ever send you a care package? What do you remember getting and just...

Paying for Child's College Tuition?

Another question on here (about size of family) got me thinking about what the "norm" is for college and children paying these days? I know that every family handles it differently, but a lot of the moms were talking about paying for college and it made me take a step back. My husband and I plan on helping our child(ren) out as much as we can with college tuition, but honestly, I believe the majority of that "burden" should fall on them. I believe that since they will then be "adults" and are working toward a career, they should be...

College Drop Off/family Vacation

For those who have done the college send off, I'd love your thoughts on combining that with a family vacation. My SD is going to school in Montreal and her move in will be the last weekend in August. I was planning on going to one of the northern New England states for vacation with my two younger sons (ages 10 & 12) anyway in August and invited my soon-to-be-ex to join us if he wanted to as we get along just fine and he's handy with things like driving a trailer or a boat. We've been looking at house/cabin rentals in various areas and...

Going Back to College

Hi Moms, Just looking for some advice/encouragement! I have 2 kids, work some part time jobs, and I am interested in going back to school in Spring 2010 for nursing. How do other Moms do it? Raising kids, being a wife, keeping a house, working, going to school, studying??? I want to have a better financial situation for our family. I know it will be difficult for a couple years, but in the end it will be worth it. ( I hope!) Thanks Moms!
