No we didn't and now we are paying for it. Escpecially when my girls are really close in age. My oldest had one year left. Unfortunely the middle daughter decided not to go) and my youngest will be in college in 2008. They have to take out a bunch of loans to get through it but we told them we would help pay the loans when they were done with school.

I am fortunate in that my mother set up one of those for my daughter. My uncle matched her contribution. They are going to be inheriting some money soon and my aunt is going to add to it as well when she gets her share. I don't know much about the 529s but I am glad that my daughter is already starting out. She isn't even 6 months old yet!

well, thats just great. there is another thing that helps us out with money for kids colleges. go to www.upromise.com and read about it. family members can be on there too and does not cost any thing.

Unfortunately We dont have any set up for the kids...budget has been pretty tight and I am beating myself up over this but will make sure we have the money for them when the time comes. We know we will have it thats no issue it still would be nice to have it done now.
