Ditto, that's how my kids college educations were paid. Started saving when they were born so would have the money when it came time to send them off to college. Not that I wouldn't do it all over, but it gets me that those that don't save (not the ones that legitimately can't afford to) get low interest loans and even financial aid assistance for college and live in big lavish houses and have huge yachts....sorry, getting off topic.
