Welcome to the (allegedly) Most Wonderful Time of The Year. We’re gearing up for celebrating Thanksgiving at my house, and you know I don’t decorate early for Christmas. Read all about that here.
But I’m all about shopping early. As a matter of fact, I’m usually done with my list by the first week of December. I’m not bragging or anything – 0k, maybe just a little – but I have way too many people on my shopping list and much too little time.
Plus, online shopping!
Anyway, the other thing I do for my family, which is growing by leaps and bounds, is stuff stockings. I’m a world-class Stuffer of Stockings, which is quite an art in itself, but that’s not important right now.
This is one gift that they absolutely won’t grow out of and they’ll thank you for much later.
A quick summary of what you’re investing in:
ScholarShare is a state-sponsored, tax-advantaged 529 college savings plan that’s helping families and individuals plan for the cost of higher education. It’s available to any citizen or tax payer. And just about anyone can help contribute including Grandparents, other family members and friends.
It only takes about 15 minutes to open an account online and it is easy to manage. There are a variety of low-cost investment portfolios to choose from including age-based, multi-fund, single-fund and guaranteed options.
You can use the funds for a lot more than just tuition — including required fees, certain room and board costs, books, supplies, as well as computers and related technology costs such as Internet access fees and printers.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s the Most Wonderful Time of The Year. Remember?
