Hello All,

I have been reading the boards and using the free version of the Fool for a little while now, just wasn't too hip on paying for it (kinda cheap on some things). I have to say that I have probably learned more from this short time than from all the second hand investing advice, so I just want to say thank you all.

Quick skinny on my situation: I am in the Army, currently in an undisclosed location (which is awesome if you ever have money spending problems)and I have about three years until I get out. The six months in this location will pay off the approximately $10,000 in debt I managed to acquire over the years, so I am not too concernd about that.

My main question is, and forgive me if it has been answered before, but by the time I seperate I should have about $30,000 in savings (aside from e-fund, unless things go insane with my finances) now, when I go to college would it be better to get college loans etc... and will they let me if I have this money in my savings/investments?

That is all for now, thank you in advance for any help. BTW, how do you all manage to budget, I can't seem to break that code and its frustrating the heck out of me.
