Michael Ernsting-Edward Jones: Do you have to choose between personal retirement savings and college savings for your kids? How do you save for both goals? There may be some tradeoffs, but here are a couple ideas to make saving and investing easier. For retirement, consider automatic paycheck deductions into your 401(k) or IRA. And for college savings, consider a tax-advantaged 529 plan. Again, you can have money moved to this investment automatically from your checking or savings account.
