Saving for College

Gerber has been running an ad on their college savings plan, so it made me wonder how many people have started saving for the kids' college educations.  Have you started saving yet?  What plans are you using?

I haven't saved for my kids college, for any of them. The most I can do to help my oldest is show him and his wife how to apply for financial aid, and then keep the baby so they can go to class and study. My kids will pay their own way, or find other means to pay for their college. They will be fully invested in it or not go. I only just finally finished college myself, having ultimately chosen a much different path than I would have 20 years ago. I found my own way, they'll find theirs. I agree, too, that it's much more important to take care of my retirement first.
