Somebody’s gotta pay

So here we are, Sonny boy is ready to take the plunge and make a decision when the rest of his letters come in.

How are we going to pay for everything?  I’m looking for advice on loans, grants, student loans, etc that will prepare me for the battle that is about to begin.  How did you do it, and if you could go back and do something different, what would it be?  Besides save more 🙂
