  • ESA's if your income let's you qualify for it. 529 plans are kinda like 401Ks (minus the match) you have only a handful of options for how to invest your money. ESAs are like IRAs in the sense that you can invest it wherever you want. 100% bonds, that's fine. 100% stocks, that's fine too. Whatever you feel comfortable with.
