College funds, the one thing that is a struggle in our house. I have a goal for helping my kids with their college education but McKenzie is now 8 years old and her account is no where near I had hoped it would be. I recently was introduced to Gradsave.com and had to share about it with all of you because I think it is AWESOME!
Every year people ask what to get the kids for Christmas and their birthdays and I am beginning to cringe at the idea of all the toys once again as I do every year and I think this might be a great solution. Instead of relatives buying my kids a ton of toys (since I have a few people in the family who tend to go overboard), having them just give my kids 1-2 small gifts and then put the extra money into the kids college savings account sounds like a much better idea to me and with Gradsave you can do just that.
