Oh how clever.
The financial industry is jumping on the “day” bandwagon (see: National Pancake Day, Talk Like a Pirate, Waste An Entire Day On YouTube Day, etc.) by making today, 5/29, 529 College Savings Day.
Seems like as good a day as any then to revisit my case AGAINST saving for your child’s college education, because my position is the natural enemy of May 29th…all of a sudden…and will never be more against the grain than it is today.
Spend a portion of 529 College Savings Day reading or rereading my detailed case for investing in your children instead of saving for their college tuition expenses on The Huffington Post.
