College can cost a fortune and saving for your child's education can seem like a daunting task. The sooner you start saving for college, the better and easier it will be in the long run. Here are some tips to help you get started: Start small-Starting small is better than not starting at all. Try to find small ways to save. It may be as simple as not buying coffee out, packing a lunch, or buying store brands at the grocery store. Make saving automatic-If you don't have to think about saving it might be easier. Set up an automatic payroll deduction or electronic bank transfer to direct money into your college savings account. If you don't see the money, chances are, you won't miss it. Don't wait-There is no time like the present to start saving. Even if you can only save a little, remember that every little bit helps.
