Any advice?

I am married with one steady income and have two children, ages 4 months and 3 years.
I don't see how it is feasible for me to max out my 401k at work at 15% and still save for college.
Should I invest 8% in the 401K and the rest for college?
And what do I even do with the funds for college?

Yes, I am new to and investing. And I am learning as I go. I wanted some real-life advice from families... Thanks in advance. Sheri
