when my oldest was born(graduating high school this year) i asked the accountant for advice on planning for his education.the first thing he said was to put as much as i can into my 401k and if i was able to max it out then to save for my son.his reason was i could never make up the time in my 401k if i waited until later in life to max it out while saving for school and if i had to stop it or lower it while paying for college i would be better off. just something to think about. i wasnt able to do both at the time but now with maxing out the 401k for awhile now and paying off the mortgage i should be able to pay as he goes
