How to finance college without borrowing too much
When it came to saving for our two kids to go to college, my family found itself in a pickle jar good and tight.
My eldest plans to begin his college career this fall. My husband and I first thought about contributing about $10,000 a year to college, and the kids were expected to cough up the rest. (One study found that when parents give kids a blank check, grades are lower.) The goal was to avoid saddling the boys with student loans.
