Quoting lolajessup:" For those of you that say u can't afford it, do u get any tax return $ back? We can't afford it but we ... [snip!] ... something I ever want my children to feel. That is why we make this our main priority every year when we get our tax return."
I hate to burst your bubble, but even when putting aside tax money every year, you will most likely still have to pay more with your savings to put your child(ren) through college. College rates go up pretty damn exponentially, and in 15+ years, I cringe at the thought of how much tuition/room&board of a 4 year well known university will be. But hey, at least you will be able to pay a chunk, but being able to outright pay it on the spot, unlikely.
