Yes, I know. There are so many of these questions, and answers, that it may be redundant. But really, how much?

I'm returning to college full-time either this fall or next spring. I've got 30-40 years to retirement, or at least that's the current plan. I know the mantra of compound interest, and a little goes a long way. But I also just paid off my debt and don't want more to go to school. So do I keep investing for retirement over the next few months anyway, or save everything I'm making in my education accounts?
