I had a slightly different 529 approach than you have suggested..

I would use the money in the 529K to fund the kids but I would continue adding to it after they graduated for college. I would be able to enjoy some tax dedications for state taxes in Illinois every year allowed 10K per year or 20K if married. So basically I would fund their account till I pass away while passing along gifts etc tax free.

I am asking because I noticed 529s are expanding in that you can use it for private school tuition before kids go to college. Eventually I believe it will be allowed for daycare.....

It sucks I cant contribute to an HSA (we don't have one at work)…but I have a supplemental something via work that I contribute to that is similar..
