Hi All,

I am curious on how to save for my kids college. Here is my situation:

- 26, single (but not for much longer)
- Probably have first kid at 30, so we are looking at 20+ years before first child reaches college

I currently have the following 3 vehicles setup for myself:

- Full funded 401K
- Fully funded ROTH IRA (for retirement)
- Cash in stock market - love those hidden gems

What can I setup on the side for my future kids college? I already have an IRA so I cant do another one of those ... but maybe I could have my future wife start one up under her name for this? Also, are there any special IRA's specifically for this purpose?

Any information would help, thanks!
