      I don’t know how you feel about relocating or how long the program will last (we are hoping a long time as our youngest is only 6…) but the state of Georgia has a plan funded thru lotterymoney that pays for full ( I think- we’ve not used it yet) tuition and books for GA students (to state approved colleges/universities) for 4 years if they have a good grade point average coming out of high school and maintain it while in college… Something to think about and look in to…..

      We are considered a low income family. My oldest daughter is 10 and I would like to make sure she can afford to go to college. I think my finances would be so much better if I had stayed in college instead of marrying Mr. Wrong. Are their programs for low income families to secure tuition? Can you give me a link to the plan you are using so I can read about it? I have three girls, and the thought of them not being able to afford to go to college is something I hope to avoid.

      I will do a search for college tuition programs, but I thought maybe someone could give me additional information.

      Thanks!

      I
      think if we’d given the kids everything they wanted, like some
      families do, we wouldn’t have their college savings set aside–which
      we do! We used one of those state programs for buying credits at
      today’s prices, regardless of what the credits might actually cost in
      the future when the kids use them. Our oldest is a junior in college
      and we have barely had to scratch the surface of that tuition savings
      plan yet. And this on my part-time income and my husband’s civil
      service income!
