Experts say it's never to soon to plan for college savings. With my first son, we started a 529 College Savings plan offered for Oregon last January when he was closing in on his second birthday. I admit, I'm not sure if the Oregon College Savings plan was the best choice but I selected it mainly because it offers tax deduction for residents, and the fact that I wanted to choose a plan quickly before procrastination would soon kick in. There are sites like Savingforcollege.com that offer tons of information but I don't have the stomach nor the patience to sift through the dizzying options. Morningstar suggests Virginia, Utah, and Alaska have some of the best plans for those that don't like the options provided from your home state, but why? What have you done? What college savings plans have you opted to invest in and why? What other alternatives are you seeking if you feel 529s are not the best option?
