and 529k contributions can be deducted from our state income.

we have no state income tax by StackyMcRacky (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Apr 11, 2008 at 11:08:52 AM EST
and we don't have the cash to put money in a 529 at this point.  clock's mom is putting money into a 529 for the dude on a regular basis.

our current financial plans are as follows:  1a) save $20k for additional down payment on a new house  1b) max out retirement options

and then after that we can worry about the dude's college fund.

honestly, though... by gzt (2.00 / 0) #9 Fri Apr 11, 2008 at 12:25:38 PM EST
...college savings are sort of a scam.

little known fact about me by dev trash (2.00 / 0) #11 Mon Apr 14, 2008 at 03:19:53 PM EST
I don't like tomatoes, unless they're right off the vine, and then on two slices of bread with a smidgen of mayo.

Fresh is always better

Taxes were done a month or two ago by theboz (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Apr 11, 2008 at 09:59:37 AM EST
Fortunately, we live in a state with no state income tax, so it was not too difficult.  The refund was nice.  I got my tax refund direct deposit AND my bonus from work on the same day.  Cha-ching!

As far as the weather goes, I basically finished the work in the yard.  I carried over 1380 pounds of dirt by hand since I don't own a wheel barrel, and have no plans to purchase one.  I also got sunburnt, so I was extremely sore and burnt at the same time.  The burn if very itchy now, so it's almost gone.

I bought one for $10 at a garage sale by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Apr 11, 2008 at 10:48:28 AM EST
wheelbarrows are pretty handy to have around.

i finally broke down and bought a wheel barrel.  holy crap, WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?!  I don't have room for it in the garage, so it sits outside, on the side of the house.  After 2 years of being outside, it's still in awesome condition. 

again, TOTALLY WORTH THE PURCHASE PRICE!
