I’m feeling very productive today. I’ve gotten lots of work done, and I just opened a 529 plan for our son. I set it up with a $100 deposit, and a recurring $100 monthly deposit starting in July. I also set up a UPromise account – we’ll see how that goes… I don’t think that they give credit for money spent at thrift stores. But it looks like grocery stores count, so it should add up to something. The 529 plan was very easy to set up – I had done all my research last month, so I knew what plan we were going to enroll in. The money will be invested in Vanguard funds, which is good, and the whole process, including UPromise, took me about 30 minutes. We chose an age-based investment plan, so we don’t have to do anything. The account will be automatically funded from our bank account every month, and it will just do its thing for the next 18 years. Love it.
