This is the time of year we are all trying to save a little here and there, so as your money seems to be flying out the door to local retailers, it's also a good time of year to think about how you're going to pay for your child's college education.

Keith Brown, the Executive Director of The Opportunity Plan in Canyon, has some reminders to help get through college with your finances in tact.

First things first,  consider putting money into a fund for someone you love this Christmas. 

Tips For Saving

Starting at Birth

- $20 a Month = $6000

Starting at Age 8

- $10 a Month = $1500

- $15 a Month = $5000

Another thing to think about during the holidays is getting the FAFSA complete.  It's due after January 1st. 

You might as well get the college applications done.
