My brother-in-law once told me that he already started investing for the college of his two kids. He and the wife, my sister, buy silver coins every month, so, probably, they have a bunch now since they started buying three years ago when they had their first born. I wanna do it for the lil one but the hubby already started his. The difference is that it ain't silver coins, it's antique switchblade knives. I might start collecting or investing, too, after I finish all my projects for the house.
