I have Coverdell accounts, and on-line brokerage accounts in our names for college savings.

We can't do the Roth thing! I know tough problem to have, but its annoying to not be able to take advantage due to income limits.

I avoid the 529s right now, they keep changing things. By the time I need it (kids age 4 & 6) a 529 plan might be next to worthless or not able to use the funds for where they decide to go. I also don't like being locked into certain funds within the 529 plans.

I wish they or someone could uncomplicate matters and have an investment account for college savings where you can invest in whatever you want.
