If you plan ahead, you can save like Sage!

My fellow Nevadans, we have a job to do! It is time we get real about saving for college, and Nevada has a ton of great plans to make paying for college easy; like Prepaid Tuition to lock in tomorrow's tuition at today's prices or 529 accounts that can be opened with just $15. Did you know, kids are 7 times more likely to attend college if they know there is a college savings account in their name to help pay for it?* If that's not simple, I don't know what is! Saving doesn’t just happen overnight, you know!
