Shortly after Natalie was born eighteen - wait, NINETEEN - months ago we started a savings account for college.
Because college is expensive, man. Like, ridiculously. I can't wait to see how much it costs in seventeen years.
Please note the sarcasm.
I have an automatic transfer set up so that every Monday $25 gets transferred from our checking account into Natalie's college savings account. Last week I opened a similar account for Easton. It isn't much, and it takes a long time to grow, but in eighteen years we will have saved over $23,000.
And probably, in eighteen years, that will be enough to pay for one semester.
