Actually, I wouldn't mind hearing the pros and cons of the Roth for saving. I only saw a few on the board. I know I am limited to $2000, but I figured I could put the first $2000 and then use a non-tax free route after that. You also tell me more about the 529 plans?

My plan for college saving is go aggressive for say 6-7 yr, then add in some bonds and reduce the stocks [probably a 20-30%/80-70% split, respectively] Then change the mix again when we get closer to the pay for college.
