Well, for the first time ever, I have met the annual limit of 401(k) contributions allowed. Kind of cool and I'll be able to send the earmarked funds not being sent to my 401(k) to help snowball against the last credit card with any sort of a balance on it...Based on my estimates, we'll be out of debt except for the mortgage by this time next year and we will be able to really sock some money away every paycheck.The question I have however is around "what else"... What else should I be considering and would love to hear your ideas. I have enough to open a small brokerage account, but need some ideas.Our retirement looks like this so far:My 401(k) - Currently just over $100kDW's State Teacher retirement - not very bigxSixSigmaMBB
Forgot to mention, after this year (2006), I don't believe that I am eligible to contribute to an IRA and receive the tax benefits based on my AGI.xSSMBB
Opening a brokerage account sounds like a good idea. Maybe start by purchasing some VV.Why the x6σ?--whyohwhyohMaxing 401k since 2000.
Not my primary job responsibility any more... :-DStill have the headstone to prove however that I did all the work, passed the test, and could likely teach the subject.x6σMBB
